The following communication: 

Office of the Mayor,) 
Chicago, October 4, 1915.} 

To the Honorable, the City Council 
of the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Inasmuch as your 
Honorable Body has not been in ses- 
sion for nearly three months, and 
as a number of important events 
have occurred since your last ad- 
journment and several issues of 



October 4, 1915.

moment to the municipality are 
pending, I take this occasion of 
your reassembling for a season's 
work to bring to your attention 
certain information which I be- 
lieve you should have knowledge 
of and to make certain suggestions 
and recommendations which I deem 
timely the Council and its commit- 
tees to act upon. 

Eastland Disaster. 

On July 24th last the world was 
shocked at the magnitude of the 
Eastland disaster in the Chicago 
River, which cost the lives of 811 
of our citizens. Through the pa- 
triotic and unselfish effort of the 
Mayor's Committee and the co-op- 
eration of the public press, and 
various societies, business houses 
and individuals, $375,000 was raised 
for the relief of those who suffered 
through the catastrophe, all of this 
fund being donated by citizens and 
associations of Chicago. Every 
case was minutely investigated by 
the local branch of the American 
Red Cross and so far as human un- 
derstanding can determine, equal 
and exact justice was done in every 
instance. The collection and dis- 
tribution of that vast sum was ac- 
complished within two months 
from the time of the accident at a 
total cost of administration of less 
than $500, which was the total sum 
deducted and which is a percent- 
age of lessi ithanj one-seventh of one 
per cent. 

Subways. 

I desire to call the attention of 
the City Council to the imperative 
need of a system of subways in 
and extending from the so-called 
"down-town" or "Loop" district, 
for the use of the transportation 
lines traversing that district. It 
has long been evident that the con- 
struction and use of such a system 
would greatly relieve the congestion 
of street traffic, which, during the 
busy hours of the day, has become 
almost intolerable, and would vast- 
ly improve the transportation serv- 



ice during the rush periods. Dur- 
ing those periods the street railway 
lines are so clogged that it is im- 
possible to move through the dis- 
trict a sufficient number of cars 
with sufficient rapidity to give any- 
thing like adequate service to the 
enormous number of people then 
using or desiring to use those 
lines. Likewise, the capacity of 
the Elevated Loop structure, with 
its two tracks, is woefully insuffi- 
cient to meet the demands made 
upon the elevated lines during those 
periods. This subject of subways 
has been much discussed in recent 
years by the people, the press and 
the city authorities, and while the 
general opinion appears to be in 
favor of the immediate construc- 
tion of a system adequate to the 
needs of the situation, no real 
progress has been made in the mat- 
ter. The time is ripe for some 
actual accomplishment in this di- 
rection, and I earnestly urge the 
City Council to take up the subject 
immediately, with a view to start- 
ing actual work upon this great 
improvement. 

At one time it was proposed 
that the City build a so-called 
"comprehensive system" of sub- 
ways, to be maintained and operat- 
ed by it independently of the exist- 
ing lines. This was objectionable 
because it meant the payment of 
two full fares for any passenger who 
should use the subway for part of 
his journey and one of the existing 
lines for the other part, and be- 
• cause it was exceedingly doubtful 
whether a system operated in com- 
petition with existing lines could 
for many years be made to pay a 
fair return, or indeed any return 
at all, upon its cost. The proposi- 
tion to construct such a system was 
submitted to the judgment of the 
people at the election held April 
seventh, 1914, and was defeated by 
an overwhelming vote. It has also 
been proposed that the City proceed 
to the construction of a system un- 
der the provisions of the ordinances 



1434 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



October 4, 1915. 



of February, 1907, making grants 
to the surface line companies. 
These ordinances provide that if 
the City should build a system of 
subways to be used wholly or part- 
ly as down town terminals for the 
street railway lines, the street rail- 
way companies shall contribute not 
exceeding $5,000,000 toward the 
cost of that part of the initial sys- 
tem devoted to itheir use, and their 
pro rata portion of the cost of that 
part of any future extensions de- 
voted to their use, and the ordi- 
nances further provide that the 
initial system and the extensions 
shall be first approved as to loca- 
tion, character and extent by the 
Board of Supervising Engineers. 
Under the ordinances the contribu- 
tions made by the companies would 
be added to their capital valuations, 
upon which they would be entitled 
to a five per cent annual return, 
but there is no provision for pay- 
ment to the City of any return upon 
the excess cost over and above such 
contributions. For example, if that 
part of the initial system devoted to 
the surface lines should cost say 
$25,000,000, as has, I think, been 
estimated, and the companies 
should contribute $5,000,000 there- 
of, the companies would thereafter 
be entitled to an allowance, an- 
nually, from their earnings, before 
dividing with the City, of five per 
cent on $5,000,000, while the city 
would get no return at all on the 
$20,000,000 invested by it. This 
seems to be a weighty objection 
against proceeding under the ordi- 
nance of 1907, and moreover it is 
clear that the construction of a sys- 
tem without taking account of sub- 
way requirements in the event of 
complete unification of surface and 
elevated lines (a consummation 
which is highly desirable to give 
the people the best service attain- 
able) , would be but a partial solu- 
tion of our problem. 

A more feasible plan seems to be 
a system of subways constructed by 
the City in and through the down 



town district (and extending there- 
from as far as may be warranted 
by the needs of the situation), to 
be used jointly by both the ele- 
vated and surface lines, operated as 
a unified system of transportation, 
under such terms of rental as 
would be fair and reasonable in the 
light of the earning power of the 
unified system. It is true that such 
a plan cannot be realized except by 
a triparty agreement between the 
City, the elevated and the surface 
companies, but in view of the fact 
that the companies have several 
times expressed, publicly and to 
the Local Transportation Commit- 
tee, their willingness to negotiate 
for such an agreement on fair 
terms, I think a persistent and busi- 
ness-like effort should be made to 
bring it about. Inasmuch as the 
formulation of a concrete scheme 
for consideration and discussion re- 
quires the work of experts familiar 
with the engineering and financial 
problems involved, it seems to me 
that the most rapid progress can 
be made by the employment of ex- 
perts on behalf of the City to work 
out, in conjunction with representa- 
tives of the companies, and to rec- 
ommend, a completed plan for uni- 
fication and subways, to be submit- 
ted to the City Council for discus- 
sion, amendment, approval or re- 
jection. Of course any plan finally 
agreed upon in all its details be- 
tween the City Council and the com- 
panies should, before becoming ef- 
fective, be approved by the people 
on a referendum vote. I am in- 
formed that it is feasible to have 
a unified operation of the surface 
and elevated lines by means of an 
operating agreement under which 
the earnings of all the lines could 
be pooled in much the same manner 
as is now done between the various 
street railway lines, and an allow- 
ance could be made out of the com- 
bined earnings of a fair return on 
the elevated properties before di- 
vision of net receipts with the 
City. I do not think the difficulties 



October 4, 1915. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



1435 



of agreeing upon the amount of 
such allowance are insurmountable. 
It is not a question of exacting 
compensation from the elevated 
lines for use of street rights or 
privileges to be granted by the 
City. Those lines are constructed 
for the most part on private right 
•of way, and the street privileges 
which they now possess do not ex- 
pire for more than twenty years. 
In such an arrangement asi is pro- 
posed those lines would be granted 
nothing which they do not now 
have except the right to use City 
subways, and this would be com- 
pensated for by a fixed rental. As 
I. see it the question is what would 
be a fair and reasonable allowance 
to the elevated properties out of 
the combined earnings as compensa- 
tion for their use as part of the 
unified system, and in determining 
this question consideration should 
be given to the improved transpor- 
tation service that would be ef- 
fected by the combination and the 
amount of earnings that may be 
expected from unified operation, as 
well as to the estimated value of 
the properties under present condi- 
tions. Of course any arrangement 
should give to the City the right to 
purchase the elevated properties at 
any time at a price either to be 
fixed now or to be fixed at the time 
of the purchase under and in ac- 
cordance with agreements now 
made, which should be so drawn 
as to protect ithe interests of the 
City in every possible way. I be- 
lieve that if the entire subject of 
subways and unification is taken up 
at once in the manner suggested, or 
in some other business-like man- 
ner, and persistently pressed, we 
may reasonably hope that a fair ar- 
rangement acceptable to the City 
and to the companies can be made 
within a short time; and I recom- 
mend ithat the City, without delay, 
authorize and provide for the em- 
ployment of experts for the pur- 
poses above suggested, or take up 
in some other practical manner 
negotiations with the companies. 



Plan for Investigating Complaints. 

I cannot too strongly urge the 
co-operation of the members of the 
Council to assist me in doing con- 
structive work for the betterment 
of Chicago, and, in order that 
members of the Council need not 
waste their time with petty squab- 
bles and bickerings, instigated for 
no other purpose than to obtain 
personal notoriety and expend and 
waste public funds, the results of 
which only reflect discredit on Chi^ 
cago, I have prepared a blank form 
upon which the members of the 
Council and the citizens of the city 
can make bona fide complaints; 
these blanks read as follows: 

City of Chicago — Executive 
Department. 

This blank is for the use of indi- 
viduals or organizations desiring 
to register complaints against any 
officer or employe of the City, or 
wrong or unsatisfactory conditions 
existing in any Department or 
Bureau of the municipal govern- 
ment, which demand correction and 
which should be brought to the 
Mayor's attention. These blanks 
may be obtained at every Precinct 
Police Station in the City of Chi- 
cago', every Fire Engine House, 
every Ward Superintendent's office 
and every office in the City Hall. It is 
intended by the use of these blanks 
to obtain the (Systematic co-opera- 
tion of the public in reporting the 
incompetence, discourtesy or neg- 
lect of duty of City employees, the 
remedying of wrongful conditions 
and the suppression of crime. 

William Hale Thompson, 

Mayor. 

To the Mayor:

the person, or persons, named here- 
in or conditions existing as herein

Enforcement of Laws. 

I have recently received com- 
munications from citizens of Chi- 
cago that liquor is sold in this city 
on Sunday in violation of the State 
Law. I referred these communica- 
tions to the Corporation Counsel 
for an opinion as to what is the law 
Mi regard thereto. 

He advises me that the State Law 
provides that "whoever keeps open 
any tippling house or place where 
liquor is sold or given away upon 
the first day of the week,' common- 
ly called Sunday, shall be fined 
not exceeding $200.00;" and that 
the city ordinance permitting under 
certain restrictions saloons or 
dramshops to remain open on Sun- 
day does not and cannot nullify the 
State Law. 

This being the law, as I am ad- 
vised, and it being my duty as 
Mayor to take care, so far as lies 
within my power, that the law is 
faithfully executed in the city, I 
hereby direct that saloons or dram- 
shops shall comply with the law 



and close on Sunday. And the City 
Collector is hereby ordered immedi- 
ately to notify in writing all per- 
sons to whom he has issued li- 
censes for saloons or dramshops 
that such persons must comply 
with the requirements of the State 
Law. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor. 

Aid. Capitain moved that the 
foregoing communication be placed 
on file. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Capitain moved that the 
Committee on Local Transportation 
be directed to give consideration to 
that part of said communication 
which relates to passenger subways. 

The motion prevailed. 

Subsequently Aid. Cullerton moved 
that the Committee on License be 
directed to give consideration to 
that part of said communication 
which relates to the closing of 
dramshops on Sundays. 

The motion prevailed. 



Veto of Ordinance Creating Board 
of Standards and Apportionment. 

ALSO, 

The following veto message: 

Office of the Mayor J 
Chicago, October 1, 1915.] 

To the Honorable, the City Council 
of the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — By virtue of the au- 
thority vested in me, I hereby veto 
an ordinance passed by your Hon- 
orable Body on July 15, 1915, and 
appearing on pages 1339-40 of the 
Journal of the Proceedings of the 
City Council of that date entitled 
"An Ordinance Creating a Board of 
Standards and Apportionment," un- 
der which it is proposed to estab- 
lish a new department of the city 
government to have in charge the 
preparation of estimates of funds 



October 4, 1915. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



1437 



required to conduct the business of 
the various departments of the city 
government and to perform other 
duties mentioned therein. 

My reason for withholding my 
approval of said ordinance is that I 
am advised by the Corporation 
Counsel that the said ordinance is 
invalid and cannot be enforced, and 
I am also influenced to veto the said 
ordinance by reason of the fact that 
the creation of such a department 
at the present time would be inop- 
portune, because it is reasonably 
certain that the people of the city 
will soon vote on the Park Con- 
solidation Act which contains a pro- 
vision under which a board of esti- 
mate may be created. It would 
therefore, be a useless formality to 
establish such a department while 
the authority for vesting it with the 
necessary powers is lacking when 
in all probability a board of esti- 
mate with authority to act along the 
lines indicated in the proposed or- 
dinance can be legally created with- 
in a short time. 

In the opinion of the Corporation 
Counsel it is pointed out that this 
ordinance is invalid on three 
grounds: First — The ordinance is 
uncertain and ambiguous in that it 
seems from the language employed 
in same that it is the intention to 
establish a department of the city 
government to be known as the 
Board of Standards and Apportion- 
ment and also a board consisting of 
the City Comptroller, the Chairman 
of the Committee on Finance and 
three members of said committee, 
while in various parts of said pro- 
posed ordinance the word "board" 
is used in such a way that it is im- 
possible to ascertain whether it is 
applied to the Board of Standards 
and Apportionment or the board to 
be made up of the City Comptroller 
and others; Second — If the ordi- 
nance is to be construed as creat- 
ing only one board, then it is sub- 
ject to the legal objection that 
members of the City Council would 
thereby be holding other offices in 



the city government besides the of- 
fice of alderman, contrary to Sec- 
tion 5 of Article III of the Cities 
and Villages act; Third — The pro- 
posed ordinance would confer upon 
a board of which the Comptroller is 
a member certain duties relating to 
estimates for necessary outlays, ex- 
penses and liabilities of the City of 
Chicago and the preparation of a 
budget, which duties under the 
charter are conferred and imposed 
solely and exclusively upon the 
Comptroller. 

With regard to the provisions 
made for a similar body in the Park 
Consolidation Act, I beg to refer you 
to Section 3 of Article II of the said 
Act. I also call your attention to 
the fact that the Act provides that 
the same may be submitted to the 
voters at the coming spring election 
in case the City Council passes an 
ordinance requiring it to be done. 
The section referred to- provides 
that the City Council may create a 
board of estimate, the members of 
which shall be selected or desig- 
nated in such manner as the Coun- 
cil may provide; and in case such 
a board is created the duty is im- 
posed upon it to submit to the City 
Council, at such time and in such 
manner and form as the City Coun- 
cil may direct, a report or reports 
of its estimates of moneys necessary 
to be appropriated in the annual 
appropriation bill. 

Anticipating the likelihood of the 
adoption of this act by the people I 
have caused to be prepared an ordi- 
nance establishing a Bureau of 
Audit and Estimate which shall act 
under the City Comptroller and 
which may be merged or recon- 
structed as your Honorable Body 
may direct at a later date so as to 
conform with the requirements for 
the board of estimate provided for 
in the Park Consolidation Act. This 
ordinance was drafted by the Cor- 
poration Counsel after consultation 
with the Comptroller and the bureau 
heads of the Department of Fi- 
nance and after conferences with a 



1438 



communications, etg. October 4, 1915. 



number of bank officials who are 
now preparing a report on the plan 
outlined in said ordinance. 

I submit the said ordinance here- 
with as a substitute for the one 
which is vetoed by this message, 
and I recommend the passage of 
this substitute ordinance. I further 
recommend that, if this substitute 
ordinance is passed, in preparing 
the annual appropriation bill for 
the year 1916 provision should be 
made for the expenses of the Bu- 
reau of Audit and Estimate to be es- 
tablished under same in such a way 
that the appropriations made for 
that purpose may be used by a 
board of estimate to be created in 
accordance with the Park Consoli- 
dation Act if the same is adopted. 

For your further information I 
transmit herewith the opinion of 
the Corporation Counsel on the 
validity of the ordinance vetoed by 
me. 

Yours respectfully, 
(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor.

ALSO, 

The following veto message: 

Office of the Mayor,) 
Chicago, October 4, 1915. J 
To the Honorable, the City Council 

of the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I herewith return, 
without my approval, an ordinance 
passed by your Honorable Body on 
July 12, 1915, and appearing on 
pages 1177 and 1178 of the Journal 
of the Proceedings of the City Coun- 
cil of that date, whereby the sum of 
$480,000 is appropriated for the 
purpose of constructing buildings 
and equipment within the grounds 
of the House of Correction for fur- 
nishing power, light, heat and re- 
frigeration to the House of Correc- 
tion, the Contagious Disease Hospi- 
tal and the Marshall Boulevard 
Municipal Plant. 

My reason for withholding my ap- 
proval of said ordinance is that said 
appropriation is made from the 
water fund, and I am advised by the 
Corporation Counsel that such ap- 
propriation from that fund is con- 
trary to law, the said money being 
used for other purposes than the 
maintenance and operation of the 
water system of the City of Chicago. 

I therefore recommend that the 
vote by which the said ordinance 
was passed be reconsidered, and 
that the same be referred back to 
the Committee on Finance for the

Veto of Ordinance Amending Sec-

ALSO, 

The following veto message : 

Office of the Mayor,) 
Chicago, October 4, 1915.J 

To the Honorable, the City Council 
of the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I herewith return, 
without my approval, an ordinance 
passed by your Honorable Body on 
July 15, 1915, and appearing on 
pages 1392 and 1393 of the Journal 
of the Proceedings of the City Coun- 
cil of that date, whereby Section 
712 of The Chicago Code of 1911 is 
amended. 

My reason for withholding my ap- 
proval of said order is that the 
amendatory ordinance does not in- 
clude a portion of the ordinance 
now in force, and the enactment of 
same would deprive the city of con- 
trol over the location of medical 
dispensaries, second-hand stores 
and yards, smoke houses, etc., all 
of which are now included in the 
ordinance. 

I therefore recommend that the 
vote by which the said ordinance 
was passed be reconsidered, and 
that the same be referred to the 



Committee on Judiciary for further 
consideration. 

Yours respectfully, 
(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson,

Department of Public Works,] 
Bureau of Maps and Plats, \ 
Chicago, Aug. 4th, 191 5.J 
Hon. Wm. Hale Thompson, Mayor: 

Dear Sir — I beg to recommend 
your veto of an ordinance changing 
the name iof Garrison avenue to 
Eastlake terrace passed July 12th 
last, appearing in left hand column 
page 1205, Journal of the Proceed- 
ings of that date, for the following 
reasons : 

In the ordinances for elimination 



1440 



communications, etc. October 4, 1915. 



of duplication in street names 
passed in recent years, a definite 
plan was adopted whereby new 
street names were selected on an 
alphabetical basis, the index letter 
of the name representing the parti- 
cular mile in which the street was 
located measured from the base line. 
In the case in question the street is 
located in the seventh mile west of 
the eastern limits of the city and its 
name therefore should commence 
with the letter "G", the seventn 
letter of the alphabet. This was the 
reason for naming the street Garri- 
son avenue. If a change were de- 
sirable, Greylake, Greenlake or some 
similar name could be used and still 
be in conformity with the system. 
In view of the fact that the new 
system of house numbering and 
street naming has proved so bene- 
ficial, no exception to the system 
should be made. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) W. R. Moorhouse, 

Commissioner of Public Works.

date, whereby the Commissioner of 
Public Works is directed to issue a 
permit to Silverman's Shoe Store to 
string a banner across the street in 
front of premises at 2297 Milwaukee 
avenue. 

My reason for withholding my ap- 
proval of said order is that the 
privilege accorded therein is not 
limited as to time or regulation by 
the Department of Public Works 
and does not provide for revocation 
by the Mayor. 

I have caused a new draft of said 
order to be made containing the 
usual provision in this respect, and 
recommend that the vote by which 
the said order was passed be recon- 
sidered, and that the order submit- 
ted herewith be passed in lieu of 
same without the usual reference to 
a committee. 

Yours respectfully, 
(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson,

without my approval, an order 
passed by your Honorable Body on 
July 15, 1915, and appearing on

that date, whereby the Commission- 
ers of Buildings and Health are di- 
rected to issue a permit to the 
Church of Christ for the erection of 
a frame church outside of the fire 
limits. 

My reason for withholding my 
approval of said order is that I do 
not believe it accords with sound 
public policy to permit the erection 
of a frame church in the face of the 
ordinances which specify in detail 
how a building of this character 
should be constructed. 

I therefore recommend that the 
vote by which the said order was 
passed be reconsidered, and that the 
I same be placed on file.

to issue a permit to Deutsche St. 
Johannes Gemeinde to erect a frame 
church building at the southwest 
corner of Argyle street and North

mit the erection of a frame church 
building -in the face of the ordi- 
nances which prohibit such con- 
struction.

Fisk Rubber Company to construct 
a sign on the roof of the building at

My reason for withholding my

cago Code of 1911, and the parties 
desiring to construct a sign on the 
roof in question ought to build same

Buildings is directed to issue a per- 
mit to Fred E. Jahp to erect a sign- 
board on the roof of his building at 
2536 West Lake street. 

My reason for withholding my

erection of same, being contrary to 
Section 695 of The Chicago Code of 
1911, should be considered by the 
Committee on Buildings and City

Public Works is directed to issue a 
permit to Armour & Company to 
erect and maintain an electric sign 
in front of premises at 4759 Broad-

My reason for withholding my 
approval of said order is that the 
subject-matter of illuminated signs 
is controlled and regulated by ordi- 
nance, which provides for the man- 
ner of obtaining the requisite au- 
thority, for inspection, for fee, etc., 
and inasmuch as the proposed sign 
seems to be permissible under the 
ordinances of the city, the parties 
desiring to erect and maintain same

ALSO, 

The following veto message: 

Office of the Mayor,) 
Chicago, October 4, 1915.J 
To the Honorable, the City Council 

of the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I herewith return,

passed by your Honorable Body on 
July 15, 1915, and appearing on 
page 1321 of the Journal of the Pro-

Public Works is authorized and di- 
rected to permit the retail merchants 
on Lincoln avenue between Diversey 
parkway and Roscoe street to ex- 
hibit their wares on benches or 
showcases on the sidewalk in front 
of their respective places of busi- 
ness within two feet of the inside 
line of same. 

My reason for withholding my ap- 
proval of said order is that such 
a privilege extended generally to 
merchants on a certain street would 
not be fair unless a like privilege 
were extended to others, and the 
probabilities are that many applica- 
tions of this kind would be made. If 



it is the desire to alter the law so 
that retail merchants should be 
given such privileges, it would be 
better to do so by a general ordi- 
nance than by an order of this kind. 

I therefore recommend that the 
vote by which the said order was 
passed be reconsidered, and that the 
same be placed on file.

Whereas, Organizations interest-

proclaim the week beginning Au- 
gust .9th as Peach Week in Chica-

advantage of such periods.

In compliance with the terms of

proclaim Monday, August 23, as a

Whereas, Such day is observed 



generally as a holiday and marked 
by celebrations; 

Therefore, I, Wm. Hale Thomp-

dered closed on that day, except the

(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson,

Fire Prevention Day. 

Office of the Mayor,") 
Chicago, September 22, 191 5. J 

Only by the preservation of that 
wealth which has been bestowed so 
abundantly upon the American peo- 
ple can we expect to continue our 
era of national prosperity. Natural 
resources are not limitless and con- 
stant waste or drain must in time 
make itself manifest. Therefore, 
the conservation of life and of the 
various natural resources is a duty 
incumbent upon every citizen of this 
great Republic. It is our duty to 
lessen in every possible way those 
powers of destruction which mani- 
fest themselves in various forms 
of wanton waste. 

Chicago has ever been foremost 
among cities in its endeavor to con- 
tribute its share toward the promo- 
tion of good citizenship. It, there- 
fore, seems to me most opportune 
that we turn our attention toward 
the problem of the prodigious an- 
nual fire loss, the destruction of life 
and property which is annually tax- 
ing the resources of our people, re- 
sources given us in part by nature 
and developed by the art and craft 
of man. The average annual fire 
waste for the United States is ap- 
proximately $240,000,000, towards 
which the State of Illinois contrib- 
utes approximately $12,000,000. 



1454 



communications, etc. October 4, 1915. 



Statistics gathered by the Fire Mar- < 
shal of the City of Chicago show 
that the annual property loss for the 
past ten years averages approxi- 
mately $4,150,000. These losses 
represent a complete destruction of 
that much Municipal wealth and are 
especially deplorable in view of the 
fact that authorities fairly well 
agree that 75% of all fires are pre- 
ventable. 

In view of these conditions and 
in order to bring to the attention 
of the people of Chicago the dangers 
of fire and the need of their pre- 
vention, I hereby proclaim Satur- 
day, the ninth day of October, 1915, 
the anniversary of the great Chi- 
cago fire be known as Fire Preven- 
tion Day. 

It is urged that on this day school 
and other officials urge upon those 
in their charge that attention be 
given to such measures as will pre- 
vent and guard against fires and the 
dangers therefrom. Fire drills and 
other steps that may be possible 
should be taken to safeguard build- 
ings and their occupants, and when- 
ever possible instructions should be 
given on the dangers of fire and 
upon the means of fire prevention. 
Upon this day it is also recommend- 
ed that general steps be taken to 
clean up accumulations of rubbish 
and remove from vacant places 
trash and waste material that might 
cause fire. 

Respectfully, 
(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

, . Mayor. 

Columbus Day. 

Office of the Mayor,} 
Chicago, October 1, 1915.} 

Whereas, The four hundred and 
twenty-third anniversary of the dis- 
covery of America falls upon Tues- 
day, October 12, and,

Chicago, July 31, 1915. 
My Dear Sir — I have received 
your communication dated 27th 
July, sending copy of a resolution 
adopted by the City Council of the 
City of Chicago at a special meeting 
on July 26 requesting the appoint- 
ment by me of a special commission 
to investigate the cause or causes 
of the sinking of the steamship 
Eastland. 

I appreciate the humane and

thoughtful motive that gave rise to 
this resolution and with its spirit 
and purpose I am in entire sympa- 
thy. I have, however, no lawful 
power to appoint the commission of 
which you speak. In the absence 
of such authority I have endeav- 
ored to associate unofficially with 
the inquiry now proceeding under 
the requirement of the United 
States Statutes such persons as 
would give the inquiry the broad- 
est possible scope. Under this ar- 
rangement an inspector of the de- 
partment was yesterday examined 
by seven different persons at that 
inquiry, among the persons conduct- 
ing the examination being the As- 
sistant State's Attorney, one of the 
assistants to the Corporation Coun- 
sel, the Public Administrator, Rep- 
resentative Sabath, and Judge 
O'Hara, father of the Lieutenant 
Governor. 

It shall be my earnest study to 
learn every lesson possible from the 
sad disaster to the steamer East- 
land. 

Yours very truly, 
(Signed) William C. Redfield, 

Secretary.

"Tag Day" for Eastland Sufferers. 

ALSO, 

The (following communication, 
which was ordered published and 
placed on file : 

Office of the Mayor,] 
Chicago, August 2, 1915.) 
Eon. John Siman, City Clerk, City 
of Chicago: 

Dear Sir — This is to acknowledge 
receipt of yours of July 30th with 
which you transmitted a resolution 
presented to the City Council on 
July 26, 1915, directing the appoint- 
ment of a committee of five alder- 
men to make arrangements for a 
Tag Day, for the purpose of collect- 
ing funds for the relief of relatives 



and those dependent upow victims 
of the Eastland disaster, which was 
referred to the select Committee, of 
which Mr. James Simpson is chair- 
man and which was appointed by 
His Honor the Mayor, to take proper 
action to relieve the suffering and 
want occasioned by the sinking of 
the Steamship Eastland, and stating 
that the Council makes no recom- 
mendation in the matter. 

On Tuesday, July 27th, one of the 
Chicago daily newspapers applied 
for a permit to operate a Tag Day 
for the benefit of the Eastland suf- 
ferers, but on advice from the 
Mayor's Committee, the Acting 
Mayor declined to issue the permit, 
on the ground that sufficient money 
would be at the disposal of the 
Mayor's Committee from public sub- 
scriptions that were then coming in 
at a remarkable rate, as well as 
from the various benefits already 
planned by theaters, amusement 
parks, etc. 

The Mayor's Committee will make 
an announcement in the newspapers 
tomorrow morning thanking the 
public for their subscriptions and 
stating that in their judgment suf- 
ficient money will be at the disposal 
of the committee when the receipts 
from the benefits planned are in. 

The Mayor's Committee thanks 
the City Council for their resolu- 
tion, but feels that the contribu- 
tions already made, together with 
thoso that are known to be coming 
in, make it unnecessary to have the 
resolution put into effect. 

Very respectfully, 
(Signed) James Simpson, 

Chairman, Mayor's Committee.

Respectfully yours, 
(Signed) R. A. Widdowson. 

CHICAGO. 

Cradled in solitude and primal 
night 

Where the inland seas embrace the 

rolling plains; 
Born of the glacier and the boreal 

flood, 

The dank morass, the trackless 

wilderness; 
By saintly monk and pioneer first 

trod, 

Who dared t/o dream thy mighty 
destiny? 

The eagle's scream from out the 
darkened sky, 

The wolf's loud cry within the for- 
est glades, 

The war song of the savage round 
thy cot: 

Such was thy natal welcome to the 
light, 

Oh! strong limbed giant of the new 

born world — ; 
Thy birthplace, boundless, desolate, 

sublime. 

Yet still thy strength and proud 
dominion grew. 

The teeming earth gave forth its 
bounteous stores; 

The sparkling streams poured 
treasures at thy feet; 

The distant mountains showered 
thee with gold; 

And thou wert like some fair Olym- 
pian god, 

Young, radiant, vigorous, uncon- 
querable. 

In far off lands thy fame was her- 
alded, 

In lands where War abides and 

Death is King. 
Slaves burst the bonds of tyrants 

and of creeds 
That doom mankind to live mid lust 

and blood 



And were enfolded to thy generous 
breast, 

To share thy spirit's freedom and 
thy power. 

Thy Titan labors were the tasks of 
gods; 

To rise from ashes like the fabled 
bird; 

Turn rivers from their course to 

meet the sea; 
To mine a city underneath thine 

own; 

To pierce the clouds with wond- 
rous domes and towers; 

To wrest from Heaven the marvels 
of the spheres. 

And in the strife thy soul unfurled 

its wings, 
While dreams of beauty blossomed 

into life. 

The marble cities of the Greeks 
arose 

With columns, colonnades and stat- 
ues fair — 

With nymph and nereid, muse and 
storied train, 

To thrill with wonder and delight 
again. 

And round these temples miracles 
were wrought. 

The lightnings of thy chariot ban- 
ished night; 

Strange, earth - born meteors 
streamed across the sky; 

From glorious fountains spread the 
rainbow's light. 

All nations offered up incense and 
myrrh 

And formed for thee a world in 
miniature. 

Rome, Athens, Thebes, Great Baby- 
lon and Tyre, 

Creations of the centuries, have 
passed 

And yet for thee the dawn has just 
begun — 

The new Colossus with an energy 
Resistless as Niagara's thundrous 
flow — 

Thy state prophetic of the glories 
still to come.

desires to thank you for your ef-

Ordinance on March 29th last by 
which it is obligatory to place a

To the Honorable Members of the 

City Council of Chicago, City Hall, 

Chicago, Illinois: 

On the afternoon of Saturday, 
October 9th, the Dry Chicago Fed- 
eration is planning for a great tem- 
perance parade. This parade will 
be in connection with no political 
party nor religious organizations, 
but will include members of all 
parties and faiths. The purpose of 
this parade is to set forth the rav- 
ages of alcohol. As all civilized 
governments have during the past 
few months taken into serious con- 
sideration the destructive effects of 
alcohol, we believe that it will not 
be foreign to your interest to take 
consideration of this movement in 
Chicago. The use of alcohol is un- 
doubtedly productive of a great deal 
of Chicago's crime, disease and pov- 
erty. 

Your honorable body is hereby 
invited to review the ,temperance 
parade from the balcony of the

Temporary Appointments to Posi- 
tions in Classified Service. 

ALSO, 

The following communication, 
which was referred to the Commit- 
tee on Finance: 

Chicago, October 4th, 1915. 

To the Honorable, the City Council 
of the City of Chicago: \ 
Gentlemen — The City Civil Ser- 
vice Law provides that "Sixty Day" 
temporary appointments may be 
approved by the Civil Service Com- 
mission only to meet extraordinary 
exigencies or to prevent the stop- 
page of public business. 

In four months the present City 
Civil Service Commission has grant- 
ed nine thousand one hundred and 
sixty-three (9,163) temporary au- 
thorities. The whole service of 
Chicago does not greatly exceed 20,- 
000 positions. 

The jobs for which these tem- 
porary appointments have been 
made include many high salaried 
positions in the city service. We 
enclose a list showing a few of the 
more important of these temporary 
appointments and a blue print giv- 
ing in detail the temporary appoint- 
ments in various departments with 
the dates when they have been 
made. The statistics shown in both 
these lists were taken from the rec- 
ords of the Civil Service Commis- 
sion. 

The City Civil Service Commis- 
sion is helping to build up a great 



political machine within the class- 
ified civil service. 

This is a menace to the voters 
and the public service of Chicago. 

Under date of August 30th we 
requested His Honor the Mayor of 
Chicago to remove this civil serv- 
ice commission and we enclose 
herewith copy of our letter show- 
ing a number of additional reasons 
why they should be removed. 

To this we have received no* 
answer. 

We respectfully request your 
Honorable Body to investigate the 
truth of these charges and the mo- 
tives which have prompted this un- 
precedented number of temporary- 
appointments which we have rea- 
son to believe are purely political; 
and if you find them sustained, to 
address the Mayor insisting that he 
remove the present commission and 
appoint one that will administer the 
Civil Service Law according to its 
terms and in the interests of the- 
public. 

Respectfully yours, 
Civil Service Reform 
Association op Chicago.

Railways in Chicago.

which was referred to the Commit- 
fee on Local Transportation: 

Chicago Surface Lines, } 
Chicago, October 4, 1915. J 

To the Honorable, the Mayor and 
City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago, Chicago, Illinois: 
Dear Sirs — We hand you here- 
with a copy of the opinion and or- 
der of the State Public Utilities 
Commission, dated September 29, 
1915, with reference to the Chicago 
Surface Lines. 



1460 



communications, etc. October 4, 1915. 



In transmitting a copy of this 
opinion and order we wish to call 
your attention to the fact that the 
order is not only in direct conflict 
with important provisions of the 
traction ordinances, but purports to 
assume jurisdiction of the Commis- 
sion over the street railways to the 
exclusion of control by the City. 

We regard the traction ordi- 
nances of 1907 as constituting valid 
and binding contracts between the 
City and the Companies. 

The conflict of authority occa- 
sioned by this order presents some 
serious problems with reference to 
which we should be advised as to 
the City's views and position. 

Very truly yours, 
(Signed) L. A. Busby, 

President.

COMMISSIONER OF HEALTH. 

Report on Alleged Nuisance on West

Commissioner of Health, which was 
referred to the Committee on 
Health : 

Department of Health, ) 
Chicago, July 31, 1915. j 

To the Honorable, the Mayor and 
City Council, City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Council Order of 
July 15th, relating to the noise nuis- 
ance from the Chicago Sheet Metal 
Works, 824-6 West 36th street, 
was referred to the Sanitary Bu- 
reau for investigation. The report 
is as follows: 

On July 8th an inspection was 
made on receipt of complaint, 
which showed that the noise com- 
plained of was caused by hand riv- 
eting and that about ten days pre- 
vious to this date it became neces- 
sary to work overtime in the even- 
ing and also on Sunday. The man- 
ager promised to refrain from over- 
time work and no notice was served. 

The inspector's report of July 
30th shows that the most objection- 
able noise which he observed was 
due to the operation of a foot power 
machine used in cutting sheet metal 
which by its vibration causes a 
marked nuisance. There is no 
steam or electrical power used in 
the building, and the work is now 
confined to the hours of daylight, 
7:00 A. M. to 5:30 P. M. 

Although the noise is at times 
during riveting processes and dur- 
ing the operation of the cutting 
machinery perhaps sufficient to 
cause nuisance, it is doubtful 
whether this nuisance is sufficient- 
ly marked to give justification by 
court action to an order from the 
Department requiring that it be 
discontinued, as the business would 
then have to be abandoned in its 
present location. 

A notice has been issued to cease 
operations, however, in accordance 
with the requirements of the Coun- 
cil order. 

m The determination of the ques- 
tion whether this establishment is 



subject to the requirement of a 
permit and frontage consents is a 
matter which should be considered 
by the Building Department. It is 
doubtful, in our opinion, whether 
it can be classed as a machine shop. 

Respectfully, 
(Signed) John Dill Robertson, 

Commissioner of Health.

The probable damage that will be

Horse Drinking Troughs. 

ALSO, 

The following communication, 
which was referred to the Com- 
mittee on Finance: 
Department of Public Works, ] 
Bureau of Engineering, I 
Chicago, September 13, 1915. J 

To the Honorable, the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen— On May 24, 1915, 
(see page 341, Proceedings of that 
date) your Honorable Body directed 
that a report be made relative to 
the erection and maintenance of 
horse drinking troughs throughout 
the city and the possible loss of 



revenue through the abolition of 
horse troughs in front of saloons. 

This matter has been given con- 
sideration and the following is sub- 
mitted in compliance with the or- 
der above referred to: 

(1) No loss of revenue would 
result from the discontinuance of 
the horse watering troughs now 
permitted in front of such saloons 
as have installed them. Section 
2766 of the ordinances provides 
that no charge shall be made for 
such troughs where equipped with 
automatic shut-offs, and all original 
installations are so equipped. It 
has been found, however, that these 
shut-offs get out of order very 
easily and these troughs are the 
cause of considerable waste of wa- 
ter at all times. The number of 
troughs in use at the present time 
is about 1,200. 

(2) In addition to the 1,200 wa- 
tering troughs above referred to 
there are 79 other troughs and 
fountains which have been erected 
by various societies, as follows : 



Illinois Humane Society 58 

Anti-Cruelty Society 14 

Small Parks Commission 1 

The Women's Outdoor Art 

League 3 

Social Settlement Houses 3 

Brighton Park Ladies Society... 1 

Holland - Society 1 



Some of these donated fountains, 
however, are not of the best type 
and some locations are not altogeth- 
er satisfactory. 

(3) To obtain the most satis- 
factory results these troughs and 
fountains should be located as near 
the intersection of heavy traffic 
routes as possible, and I attach 
hereto map on which has been indi- 
cated locations which would seem 
the most desirable. These number 
134, but 17 are already covered by 
donated fountains, leaving 117 
points for present consideration and 
which if covered would serve all 
present needs. 

(4) The cost of establishing 



1488 



communications, etc. October 4, 1915. 



fountains would be governed by the 
design selected. A cast iron body 
of good design similar to that shown 
in sketch attached could be installed 
complete, including waste, service 
pipes and drains, for $450.00 for the 
full circle type and $400.00 for the 
two-thirds circle type, a total of 
approximately $60,000.00 for the 
entire installation. If a cheaper 
type of trough were selected this 
estimate could be considerably re- 
duced. 

Respectfully submitted,

hundred (1800) times, and the 
speed of rotation shall not fall be 
low twenty-nine and one-hall 
(29Vo) nor exceed thirty and one- 
half "(30%) per minute. The loss of 
weight by abrasion during such test 
shall not exceed twenty (20) per 
cent, of the original weight of the 
brick tested. The test shall be made 
on charges containing but one make 
of brick at a -time. Said brick shall 
be thoroughly dry when tested. 
All brick used must be equal in 



every respect to the brick submit- 1j 
ted for test. 

The brick shall be laid as fol- 
lows to-wit: Broken brick can only 
be used to break joints in starting 
courses and in making closures, but 
in no case shall less than one-fourth 
(%) of a brick be used. The brick | 
shall be set lengthwise on edge, with 
the sides and ends close together, i 
across said roadbeds, parallel to ver- 
tical planes which shall be at right 
angles to the curb lines of said road-

Whereas, Numerous robberies 
and outrages have recently been 
committed by persons who have 
gained access to homes by pre- 
tending to be inspectors or col- 
lectors or repairmen for various 
public service corporations, and 
whereas, such deception would not 
be possible if all inspectors and 
collectors and repairmen were 
properly identified, and if those in 
charge of the homes were aware of 
the identification required and 
would demand the same before al- 
lowing such persons to enter the 
house; therefore, 

Be it resolved, That the City 
Council of the City of Chicago here- 
by requests the Peoples Gas Light 
and Coke Company, the Common- 
wealth Edison Company and the 
Chicago Telephone Company to take 
steps to so have their employes 
identified, and that on the monthly 
statement sent to consumers there 
shall be an appropriate notice to 
the public urging them not to ad- 
mit persons without the proper 
identification; 

Be it further resolved, That the 
City Clerk shall cause copies of this 
resolution to be sent to the afore- 
said companies.

Aid. Merriam presented the fol- 
lowing statement, which was refer- 
red to the Committee on Schools, 
Fire, Police and Civil Service: 

To the Honorable, the City Council: 

On May 14, 1914, your Honorable 
Body passed, without opposition, a 
resolution creating a council com- 
mittee to study and report upon the 
extent, causes and best practical 
methods of preventing crime in Chi- 
cago. This Committee, composed of 
Aldermen Merriam, Kerner, Wal- 
kowiak, Nash and Long, presented a 
preliminary report on January 4, 
and on March 22 its final report, 
findings and recommendations, and 
these recommendations were adopt- 
ed by the City Council. At the April 
election bond issues amounting to 
$250,000.00, based on these recom- 
mendations, were approved by the 
voters of Chicago. Taken together, 
these recommendations constitute 
the best constructive program of 
crime repression and prevention 
yet adopted by an American City 
Council. 

On August 9th the Civil Service 
Commission began a so-called "In- 
quiry" into the work of this com- 
mittee of the Council. I deem it 
my duty to call to the attention of 
this Council the methods employed 
by this commission in dealing with 
your Honorable Body's special com- 
mittee and the real purposes of the 
promoters of the "inquiry." 

The conclusions of the commis- 
sion were announced by the Chair- 
man before a single witness had 
been heard, and he continued in- 
termittently to re-announce his con- 
clusions during the course of the 
"Inquiry." Notwithstanding the en- 
tire lack of jurisdiction over a 
Committee of this Council, the Ald- 
ermen and all of the Committee's 
employes who were summoned, ap- 
peared and testified before the Com- 
mission. The Council Committee 
was given no opportunity to present 
any witnesses and, in fact, the Com-

October 4, 1915; 



mission adjourned and walked out 
of the room while Mr. Dobyns, at- 
torney for the Council Committee, 
was making an important statement 
before them. 

The whole proceeding was con- 
ducted with the unconcealed pur- 
pose of finding something to dis- 
credit the Council Committee and 
the City Council. The statements 
of such authorities employed by this 
Committee as Miss Abbott, Dr. 
Gault, Dr. Stevens, Mr. Dobyns, Mr. 
Dannenberg, William J. Burns, Mr. 
Davies, and others, were either not 
heard at all, lightly passed over, or 
cut off as in the case of Mr. Dobyns 
On the other hand the testimony of 
a prostitute and a stool-pigeon, 
even when contradicted by a great- 
er number of reputable persons, 
was welcomed. The evident intent 
of the Commission was to find 
something that could be twisted 
into a reflection upon the Council 
Committee. The Commission knew 
that in every criminal investigation 
whether by a City Council, States 
Attorney or United States Govern- 
ment, stool-pigeons. and informers 
ar^ employed, whose statements are 
accepted as clues and "leads." They 
knew that allowances for expense 
money are made in all such inquir- 
ies by all governments .and investi- 
gating agencies the world over and 
are made today by the Police De- 
partment of Chicago and the Civil 
Service Commission. ^They knjew 
that no money was spent for im- 
proper purposes. They knew such 
testimony given by a prostitute 
could not stand against that of three 
reliable investigators; or a snitch 
against the testimony of Fletcher 
Dobyns, Edward Altz and others. 
They knew that no such investi- 
gating committee was ever better 
equipped with expert advisers and 
employes, and expenditures more 
strictly supervised. They knew the 
substantial results obtained by the 
Committee and the Council, yet in 
each instance they sought to twist 



and turn the truth to the discredit 
of this body. 

If the unsupported testimony of 
a prostitute, contradicted by repu- 
table citizens, and the testimony of 
a "snitch", contradicted by numer- 
ous persons of the standing of 
Fletcher Dobyns, can undo the 
work of the City Council, then the 
grip of the crime trust upon Chi- 
cago, cannot be broken. The pro- 
ceeding resembled a conspiracy to 
commit criminal libel rather than 
an "Inquiry." I have never wit- 
nessed or heard of a more shame- 
less, brazen and obscene attempt to 
tear down the work of public serv- 
ants than this proceeding of the 
Civil Service Commission. 

What was the purpose of this 
farcical inquiry? If it was to at- 
tack Charles E. Merriam, citizen, 
I can take care of myself. I have 
fought and will continue to fight 
against graft, waste and fraud in 
Chicago, and will not be driven out 
by any poisonous gases. 'I have 
fought and will continue to fight 
the methods and results of the Lin- 
coln-Lorimer League, old or new, 
and will meet their opposition m 
the future as in the past. I would 
suggest, however, that, if Captain 
Coffin or those whose tool he is, 
wish to attack me personally, they 
take off the ill-fitting and unbe- 
coming mask of Civil Service Re- 
form and step out in their proper 
persons, stating why they find me 
an embarrassment to their plans. 

The real purpose and intent of 
such an inquiry was not personal. 
It is to prevent further investiga- 
tions of administrative departments 
by the City Council. This was 
plainly shown: by the fact that this 
assault followed immediately after 
the City Council's determined op- 
position to the destruction of the 
efficiency division by the Civil Ser- 
vice Commission and an order, to 
investigate the Civil Service Com- 
mission passed by this Council, by 
the general attitude of the Com- 
mission and by the express lan-

guage of their attorney. In fact, 
the purpose of the Commission is 
now openly stated, namely, to stop 
Council inquiries. 

If Council investigations can be 
prevented, then the check given to 
extravagance and corruption by this 
body will be weakened and de- 
stroyed; graft and waste be given 
free rein; and the City Hall may 
be looted at will. Shale rock steals, 
castings and coal frauds, garbage 
deals, "split interest", police graft, 
terminal grabs, land steals and 
brazen blackmail of public service 
corporations, can be undertaken 
freely without fear of council in- 
vestigation or . interference. This 
means license to loot for four year 
periods, checked, in the absence of 
the recall, only by public opinion 
and the State's Attorney. In my 
judgment, no such power to plun- 
der should be given to any set of 
men, and, believing that that is the 
attitude of the Aldermen selected 
by the several wards to represent 
the people of Chicago, I report the 
menacing action of the Civil Serv- 
ice Commission to you for your 
consideration and appropriate ac- 
tion. As one of the seventy Alder- 
men, for over four years a member 
of this Body, serving on responsi- 
ble Committees, with the right and 
duty to speak, I call your attention 
to the threatening action of the 
I Civil Service Commission and warn 
you against the efforts being made 
to break down the prestige of this 
Body and our power to protect the 
people we represent from graft, 
fraud and extravagance. 

The evidence in this case now 
shows that, while the results of the 
Council inquiry are neglected, the 
two detectives discharged on testi- 
| mony collected and presented by 
this Council have been reinstated 
J by the Civil Service Commission; 
j there is wo reduction in the crime 
! rate of Chicago; the State's Attor- 
ney declares that criminal influ- 
ences control the Police Depart- 
ment; police brutality to the poor 



and weak is as marked as the indif- 
ference to professional and protect- 
ed crime; and the recommendations 
of this Council regarding police ad- 
ministration remain unheeded by 
the responsible Department. 

The action of the Civil Service 
Commission will be taken by every 
crooked policeman as an assurance 
that he cannot be punished by the 
City, and by Chicago's crime trust 
as a safe-guard against effective in- 
vestigation by the City Council. 

I attach hereto copy of the state- 
ment read by the Chairman of the 
Crime Committee to the Civil Serv- 
ice Commission, and also the plan 
for a police probe submitted by me 
at the request of the Commission 
and rejected by them. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) Charles E. Merriam, 

Seventh Ward. Chairman 
Council Committee 
on Crime.

Whereas, these streets are run-

provements completed, and the

"On unpaved streets or streets 
where the sewer and water sup- 
ply pipes have not been con- 
structed, the tracks may be 
temporarily laid and con- 
structed with such type of con- 
struction as may be approved by

eers, who may, on such streets, 
when in their judgment advisa- 
ble, permit construction with 
rails and other materials which 
have been previously used on 
other parts of the street railway 
sustems of the companies, or any 
of them". 

Therefore, be it ordered that the 
Commissioner of Public Service,

Counsel, take such steps as are nec- 
essary to compel the carrying out 
of the foregoing contract agree- 
ment contained in said Unification 
Ordinance of November 13, 1913,

sented an order directing that work

ent demands of the American pub- 
lic, and, 

Whereas, That in view of the 
great demand, there have been or- 
ganized various so-called leagues, 
towit: the National, the American 
and the Federal Leagues, each con- 
- ducting a series of baseball games 
for the entertainment of the Ameri- 
can public, to demonstrate the sci-. 
ence to which this so-called game 
can be brought and developed, and, 
Whereas, These various leagues 
are vying with one another for su- 
premacy in the eyes of the public, 
and, 

Whereas, The said various 
leagues have conducted a long se- 



ries of contests in this entire United 
States for the purpose of ascertain- 
ing the supremacy in this great 
American game and amusement; be 
it, therefore, 

Resolved, That we, the members

Resolved, That we request the

Office of the Mayor, |

To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith 
without my approval an order

the last regular meeting directing 
the issuance of a permit to Alex 
Eisenstein for a riser leading to the 
building on the north side of Car- 
men avenue, eighty-seven feet east

it has been the policy of the city for 
several years to secure the removal 
of such obstructions from sidewalk 
space and privileges of this nature 
should not be granted without in- 
vestigation by the proper committee 
of your Honorable Body. 

I respectfully recommend the re- 
consideration of the vote by which

Veto of Order for Permit to Joseph 
Hadka to Maintain Sign. 

ALSO, 

The following veto message: 
Office of the Mayor,| 
Chicago, October 19, 1915.} 
To the Honorable, the City Council 

of the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I herewith return 
without my approval an order 
passed by your Honorable Body on 
October 4, 1915, and appearing on 
page 1552 of the Journal of the Pro- 
ceedings of the City Council of that 
date, whereby the Commissioner of 
Buildings is directed to permit 
Joseph Hadka to maintain a gal- 
vanized iron sign, 56 by 19% feet 
as now erected, on the roof of the 
building at No. 2007 Marshall boule- 
vard. 

My reason for withholding my ap- 
proval of said order is that such 
sign would be maintained contrary 
to the city ordinances and is so large 
that it constitutes an element of 
danger that should not be permitted 
to exist except for some extra- 
ordinary reason. I therefore recom^ 
mend that the vote by which the 
said order was passed be recon- 
sidered and that the same be placed 
on file. 

Yours respectfully, 
(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor.

ALSO, 

The following veto message: 
Office of the Mayor,| 
Chicago, October 19, 1915 ] 
To the Honorable, the City Council 

of the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I herewith return 
without my approval an order 
passed by your Honorable Body on 
October 4, 1915, and appearing on 
page 1596 of the Journal of the 
Proceeding? of the City Council of 
that date, whereby the Commis- 
sioner of Public Works is directed 
to require all public utility com- 
panies to remove all poles and wires 
from South Ashland avenue between 
West 69th and West 87th streets, 
preparatory to the paving of said 
South Ashland avenue. 

My reason for withholding my 
approval of said order is that the 
poles and wires contained in said 
street are outside of the district de- 
fined in the ordinances granting 
privileges to the public utilities 
companies within which all poles 
and wires of such companies are re- 
quired to be underground, and the 
said public utilities companies have 
protested against the enforcement 
of said order in the face of the 
rights granted to them. I there- 
fore recommend that the vote by 
which the said order was passed be 
reconsidered and that the same be 
placed on file. 

Yours respectfully, 
(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson,

To the Honorable, the Mayor anc 
City Council of the City of Chi-

Gentlemen — There is now pend- 
ing before your Honorable Body the 
petition of the Calumet and South 
Chicago Railway Company for ar 
ordinance authorizing the company 
to construct upon and along the 
route therein described an exten- 
sion of its street railway system, 
commonly known as the "Hege- 
wisch Extension." 

The construction of the Hege- 
wisch Extension by the company 
was required by the terms of the 
company's main ordinance, passed 
March 30, 1908. Several different 
routes for the extension were pro- 
posed by the various communities 
in the South Chicago District inter- 
ested in this extension, and a num- 
ber of hearings was had before the 
Local Transportation Committee, 
upon the question of fixing the most 
desirable route for this extension.) 
After a careful consideration of the 
various routes proposed, the com- 
pany and the Allied Improvement! 
'Associations of the South Chicago 
District agreed upon the location of; 
the line, and on March 18th the Lo-| 
cal Transportation Committee ac- 
cepted the route thus agreed upon,

and recommended the passage of an 
ordinance authorizing the construc- 
tion of the extension upon the 
agreed route. On March 29th the 
ordinance was introduced in the 
City Council, and was ordered de- 
ferred and published for one week. 

As soon as the route was accept- 
' ed by the Local Transportation 
Committee the company immediate- 
ly began the work of procuring the 
necessary frontage consents. The 
company desired to construct and 
put this line in operation not later 
than the middle of July of this year,, 
and immediately arranged for ma- 
terial and supplies for the construc- 
tion of the extension. By March 
28th the company had procured the 
requisite frontage consents for the 
entire route recommended by the 
Local Transportation Committee, 
, except for that portion of the route 
along Superior avenue from 117th 
, street to 122nd street, the frontage 
of which is controlled by Isaac N. 
Hardin. 

At the same time, the company 
; took up negotiations with Mr. Har- 
din for. the purchase from him of 
! sufficient property for the con- 
I struction of its tracks upon the 
agreed route south of 122nd street, 
and offered to pay Mr. Hardin his 
price for the property, but he re- 
fused to give the company the re- 
quisite frontage consent over the 
above mentioned portion of Supe- 
rior avenue until a contract for the 
purchase of his real estate had been 
entered into, but imposed such con- 
ditions and reservations as to pre- 
vent the closing of the matter un- 
til after March 28th, and so pre- 
vented the passage of the ordinance 
in question on that date. 

The company immediately re- 
sumed its negotiations with Mr. 
Hardin, and a final conference was 
had on April 8th. Mr. Hardin 
claimed that by the terms of his 
dedication of the above mentioned 
portion of-Superior avenue, he had 
obtained the right to construct 'and 
maintain across Superior avenue, 



for the benefit of his own property, 
a waterway 250 feet in width, and 
insisted that his frontage consent 
and sale of property be upon con- 
dition that upon the construction of 
such waterway the company 

"shall, upon written notice so to 
do, immediately remove said 
tracks and other obstructions, and 
shall without any expense to said 
Hardin, his heirs, executors, ad- 
ministrators or assigns, make 
provisions for the crossing by 
said railway of said waterway, if 
it desires to so cross the same, 
but in such way and manner as 
shall not obstruct or delay the 
construction of said waterway, or 
its use, or operation for the pur- 
poses of navigation." 
and upon the furthei condition that, 
in event the company failed to re- 
move its tracks immediately as 
aforesaid, the said Hardin should 
have the right to enter upon Supe- 
rior avenue and remove the com- 
pany's tracks at the company's ex- 
pense. 

The company agreed to all of the 
other conditions sought to be im- 
posed by Mr. Hardin, but declined 
to consent to the foregoing condi- 
tion, for the reason that such a 
condition, in case the waterway 
should be built, would cut the com- 
pany's line in two, and deprive the 
citizens of Hegewisch and the ter- 
ritory lying south of 122nd street, 
of the street railway service to 
which the public is entitled, and 
which the company is ready and 
desires to furnish. 

The company is now ready and 
willing to construct the Hegewisch 
Extension as soon as a valid ordi- 
nance authorizing the construction 
of the extension shall be passed by 
the City Council, but by reason of 
the course taken and still persisted 
in by Mr. Hardin, the company has 
been, and still is, unable to obtain 
the necessary frontage consents for 
the construction of this line, and 
therefore considers it the duty of 
the company to advise your Honor-

able Body of the situation at the 
earliest possible moment. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Calumet & South Chicago Rail- 
way Company. 
(Signed) By Glenn E. Plumb, 

President. 

Dated April 13, 1910. 



August 11, 1910. 
In Re Hegewisch Extension — 

Mr. E. H. Evans, Secretary, Com- 
mittee on Local Transportation: 

Dear Sir — We have your letter 
addressed to Mr. Geo. M. Bagby of 
this office, asking opinion upon cer- 
tain questions raised in your com- 
mittee's effort to find a feasible 
route for the Hegewisch Extension 
of the Calumet and South Chicago 
Railway Company. 

It appears from your letter that 
it was impossible to obtain requi- 
site frontage consents for a line 
from Superior avenue without ob- 
taining one from Mr. Isaac N. Har- 
din, and the consent he gave was 
conditioned upon his reservation of 
the right to construct a canal two 
hundred and fifty feet wide, north 
and south, across Superior avenue. 

It afppears that when Superior 
avenue in this locality was created 
by a plat, July 1, 1897, the dedica- 
tors expressly reserved unto Ger- 
trude H. Hardin, her heirs and as- 
signs, the privilege of extending 
or permitting to be extended at any 
time thereafter across the strip 
dedicated as Superior avenue, a 
slip, channel or canal of not ex- 
ceeding two hundred and fifty feet 
in width, north and south, to con- 
nect the waters of the Calumet 
River with the waters of Wolf Lake 
or Lake Michigan, and the purpose 
of the condition in Mr. Hardin's 
consent for the street railway, was 
to save the right of constructing 
this channel or canal. 

We are of the opinion that the 
reservation in this dedication is a 
nullity, and that the street is free 



from any and all conditions an 
reservations. 

We are advised that Mr. Hardi 
has expressed his willingness t 
agree that if a street railway i 
built in Superior avenue he will re] 
duce the width of the propose! 
channel at Superior avenue tj 
eighty feet and build a bridge then 
If he is still willing to do this, wj| 
would advise that an agreement cj 
this nature be made. 

In your letter you mention a plaJ 
recorded November 23, 1870, b 
which the west half of Superio 
avenue from 11 8th .to 120th street 
was dedicated, and the further fad 
that an attempt to vacate that sub 
division was made in 1874, and thai 
the city in 1891 passed an ordinanc 
for the opening of Erie avenue frorj 
114th to 130th street. 

As no condemnation proceeding 
for the opening of Erie avenue ii 
that locality was ever carried to t 
conclusion, so far as we are in 
formed the mere passage of the or- 
dinance amounted to nothing ant 
no rights were obtained by it. 

From the statements in your let 
ter, we are of the opinion that ther 
has been no sufficient user of thi 
streets in the subdivision recorder 
November 23, 1870, unless it be Su- 
perior avenue, to give the city an: 
right or title in those streets. 

You state it has been suggested 
that Mr. Hardin sign consents fo: 
all his property except the two hun- 
dred and fifty foot strip along eacl 
side of Superior avenue, where tin 
latter crosses the strip reserved foi 
the canal, and you ask if this woul( 
leave intact his rights to the cana 
construction, if the entire title t( 
the property is in him, and if th( 
title to the canal strip is in th( 
company over which he has entire 
ownership. 

Mr. Hardin can consent for sucl 
of his property as he chooses, anc 
that is a matter that must be de- 
termined by him alone. If he con- 
sents for such an amount of his

property as will, when added to ] 
other consents, give the requisite 
amount of frontage consents, then 
the street railway may be built even 
'in front of the property for which 
he gave no consent. 

We are unable to see how any 
consent to the construction of the 
street railway in Superior avenue 
iwill interfere with Hardin's right 
to construct the canal, unless he 
specifically waives or surrenders 
that right.

September 7, 1910. 
In Re Hegewisch Extension — 
\Hon. Milton J. Foreman, Chairman, 
I Committee on Local Transporta- 
tion: 

j Dear Sir — At your request we 
Ihave given further consideration to 
(the problems arising from the pro- 
posed use of Superior avenue for 
street railway purposes. 

We are still of the opinion that 
the reservation, by those dedicat- 
ing Superior avenue, of the privi- 
leges of extending a waterway 
across this street is a nullity. An 
enjoyment of this reservation would 
practically destroy the street and 
defeat the dedication. We believe 
it is not in the power of a dedica- 
tor to reserve the right to destroy 
the proposed highway, and every 
effort in that direction must be a 
failure. 

It has been stated that the pres- 
ent owner has expressed a willing- 
ness to agree that if a street rail- 
way is built in Superior avenue he 
will reduce the width of the pro- 
posed waterway. Following this it 
was suggested that he give his con- 
sent upon this condition and that 
the City Council pass an ordinance 
based upon that consent. Then 



arises the question, what will be 
the effect of such an ordinance upon 
his supposed right to build the wa- 
terway. 

We believe that the reservation 
in the dedication is so completely a 
nullity that no vitality can be given 
it even by putting this condition in 
his consent. In our judgment, it 
is not necessary that we consider 
his supposed rights under the dedi- 
cation. 

We believe the matter is to be 
treated as one in which there was 
no reservation made in the dedica- 
tion. In permitting the use of its 
streets for street railway 'purposes, 
the City may attach and enforce 
such conditions as it sees fit to 
name (People v. Suburban R. R., 
178 111., 594), and, on the other 
hand, in granting such a permit the 
City is limited by the conditions 
imposed by the property owners 
(Chester V. Wabash R. R., 182 111., 
382), so far as such conditions will 
serve the public interests. Inas- 
much as the construction of a wa- 
terway for private purposes across 
the highway would amount to a de- 
struction of the highway, we be- 
lieve that such a condition in the 
consent would be illegal. Never- 
theless, the City would be without 
power to grant a permit to con- 
struct a street railway there because 
the necessary consent ivould be 
lacking, for it cannot be said that 
the property owner has consented 
to the construction of a street rail- 
way in disregard of his condition. 

Yours very truly,

Assistant Corporation Counsel.

January 22, 1912. 
Hon. Eugene Block, Chairman Sub- 
committee of Committee on Local 
Transportation: 

Dear Sir — We have your request 



I 

1700 new business — by wards. October 19, 1915 



for an opinion as to whether the 
Calumet & South Chicago Railway 
Company has complied with its or- 
dinance obligationsjn regard to the 
Hegewisch & Riverdale extensions, 
and how the immediate construc- 
tion of these extensions may be re- 
quired or secured. 

The Secretary of the Commission 
suggests a broadening of the second 
half of the request, so as to include 
an opinion as to what action lies 
with the City Council in case this 
railway company has not complied 
with its ordinance. 

On March 30, 1908, a certain or- 
dinance was passed (Council Pro- 
ceedings, page 4741) which pro- 
vided for the Hegewisch and Riv- 
erdale extensions and which exten- 
sions were to be in operation by 
January 1, 1910, under the terms 
of Exhibit B of the ordinance, 
(Council Proceedings, page 4773). 

Section 3 of the Ordinance pro- 
vides as follows : 

"The Company shall not be au- 
thorized or obligated to construct 
any extension of its street rail- 
way system upon streets upon 
which street railways are not lo- 
cated when this ordinance goes 
into effect until the City has 
granted to the Company what- 
ever authority in addition to this 
ordinance may be necessary to 
comply with the frontage consent 
laws of the State of Illinois." 
Prior to July 6, 1909, frontage 
consents for the routes specified in 
the ordinance for the Hegewisch 
and Riverdale extensions had been 
secured and on this date an ordi- 
nance was granted to the company 
which was "subject to all the pro- 
visions, conditions, requirements 
andj limitations of the ordinance 
passed by the City Council of the 
City of Chicago on March 30, 1908, 

and of Exhibit B thereof." 

(Council Proceedings, page 1035). 

On page 928 of the Council pro- 
ceedings of same date appears an 



attested copy of the public notic 
asking for the passage of the ordi 
nance, and on page 798 of Counci 
Proceedings of June 28, 1909, wil 
be found the reference of frontag; 
consents for verification for th 
Hegewisch extension, and on pag! 
756 of Council Proceedings of Jun 
21, 1909, will be found the refer! 
ence of frontage consents for verij 
fication of the Riverdale extensioi 
On page 1134 of Council Proceed 
ings of August 13, 1909, is the re( 
port of the Commissioner of Pub 
lie Works showing a sufficiency c 
frontage consents as to both exten 
sions. 

We assume for the purposes ( 
this opinion that the condition 
precedent to the passage of a valij 
ordinance for both extensions wei 
complied with. The extension 
were to be constructed by Januar 
1, 1910, and upon that date had n< 
been constructed. 

The City Council undoubted 
had and has the right and power 1 
waive the condition as to the tin ( 
for completing the line, it being 
provision in favor of the City i 
secure the public interests. Tl; 
grant being a mere license, the Ci'! 
may, for satisfactory reasons, wai 1 
a strict performance of the cond, 
tions.

Several alternative routes ha | 
been suggested by the people in tlj 
locality affected and by the railw; 
company. This tentative change 
routes is sanctioned under Exhil 
B of the ordinance of March c 
1908, in respect to the Hegewisj 
extension only and by certain ame 
datory ordinances in respect to t 
Riverdale extension. 

The change of routes has been I 
subject of discussion for sevei| 
years before your committee a 
various sub-committees. It is o; 
understanding of the present situ

tion, which we will assume for the 
purposes of this opinion to be cor- 
rect, that the company will not 
proceed with the installation of the 
extensions except upon certain con- 
ditions, which the committee de- 
clines to accede to. 

From the foregoing it is reason- 
ably apparent that the company has 
to all intents and purposes refused 
to proceed with the extensions au- 
thorized by the ordinance of July 6, 
1909. 

The provisions for forfeiture of 
the ordinance of March 30, 1908, 
are as follows: 

"The Company further agrees 
that in the event that it shall 
make default in the observance 
or performance of any of the 
agreements or conditions herein 
required to be kept and per- 
formed by it, and if such default 
shall continue for a period o! 
three (3) months (exclusive of 
all time during which the Com- 
pany may be delayed or inter- 
fered with, without its conni- 
vance, by unavoidable accidents, 
labor strikes or the orders or 
judgments of any court in any 
suit brought without its conni- 
vance) , after written notice there- 
of to it from the said City, then 
and in each and every such case, 
the said City by its City Council 
shall be entitled to declare this 
grant and all of the rights and 
privileges of the Company to 
maintain and operate street rail- 
ways in any of the streets or pub- 
lic ways of the said City to be 
forfeited and at an end." 

The time prescribed for comple- 
tion has been regarded as of the 
essence of a grant, and for the 
breach of such condition the mu- 
nicipality, in giving its consent, 
may expressly reserve the right to 
declare a forfeiture and revoke its 
consent; and when an ordinance 
contains such a provision the con- 
sent may be revoked, or a forfeiture 
declared by the municipality with 



out even a judicial determination 
of the breach.

We think it is now within the 
power of the City to serve a written 
notice upon the company to per- 
form the condition of the ordinance 
in regard to these extensions, and 
if* the company shall make default 
for the period of three months after

City forfeited and at an end.

date you request this department to 
furnish the sub-committee of the 
Committee on Local Transportation 
with a complete statement, 1, of the 
rights of the City as they now stand 
with respect to the Hegewisch ex- 
tension, also 2, whether the attitude 
of the City of Chicago has been such 
as to release the Calumet and South 
Chicago Railway Company from the 
obligation to construct the Hege- 
wisch extension. 

The Hegewisch extension is pro- 
vided for in an ordinance to the 
Calumet and South Chicago Railway 
Company, dated March 30, 1908. 
The route is specifically set out as 
follows : 

"Extension from 100th street 
to Hegewisch on the east side of 
Calumet River on and along the 
following route: South on Green 
Bay avenue from 106th street to 
118th street, thence west on 118th 
street to Superior avenue, thence 
south on Superior avenue to 122d 
street, thence west on 122d street 
to Carondelet avenue, thence 
south on Carondelet avenue to 
130th street, thence east on 130th 
street to Erie avenue, thence 
south on Erie avenue to Howard 
avenue, with a 4 Y' at the inter- 
section of Erie , and Howard ave- 
nues."- t 
Several alternate routes have 
been suggested by the people in the 
locality affected, as well as by the 
Calumet Company. This change in 
routes is sanctioned by the ordi- 
nance, which provides, 

"That in case a more direct 
route can be obtained before the 
construction of said extension is 
commenced under the provisions 
of this ordinance then, subject to 
the approval of the City Council, 
said more direct route shall be 
substituted for the above des- 
cribed route." 

The change of routes has been 
the subject of discussion for several 
years before your committee and 
various sub -committees. There has 



been much talk about a so-called ! 
"Compromise Route." The City ; 
Council, however, has at no time j 
approved the substitution of the so- 
called "Compromise Route" in lieu | 
of the route specifically set out in 
the ordinance of March 30, 1908. 
As a matter of fact, the "Compro- 
mise Route" cannot be constructed 
for the reason that certain streets j 
along the "Compromise Route" are 
not open. 

The original route of the Hege- j 
wisch extension is more commonly 
known as the "Zigzag Route." 
Frontage consents for this exten- 
sion have been filed prior to July 
6, 1909, and on this date an ordi- 
nance was granted to the Calumet 
Company which was, 

"Subject to all the provisions, j 
conditions, requirements and lim- 
itations of the ordinance passed 1 
by the City Council of the City i 
of Chicago on March 30, 1908, 
* * * and of 'Exhibit B' there- - 
of." (C. P., p. 1035.) 
Since the passage of this last j 
named ordinance it has developed 
that certain streets along the "Zig- 
zag Route" are not open. It is ex- 
ceedingly questionable whether the 
city can enforce the forfeiture pro- 
visions contained in the ordinance 
of March 30, 1908, by reason of the 
failure of the Calumet Company to s 
build the "Zigzag Route" unless the 
city first furnishes a route of open 
streets upon which a street railway 
can be built. To build along the 
"Zigzag Route" would be a hazard- 
ous undertaking on the part of the 
company and might subject the 
company to considerable litigation. 
We do not believe that the company 
is obligated to expend any money 
for the purchase of a right of way 
for the Hegewisch extension under 
the ordinance of March 30, 1908. 

The Association of Commerce I 
and other public-spirited citizens 
have taken this matter up with the 
writer with a view of* overcoming 
the obstacle of unopened streets.

1703 



The writer has suggested that new 
frontage consents covering the "Zig- 
zag Route" be secured and that ded- 
ications of all unopened streets be 
made by the abutting owners. This 
would save the necessity of long- 
delayed condemnation proceedings. 

As a result of considerable labor 
and effort new frontage consents 
covering the "Zigzag Route 1 ' have 
been secured and filed, and on Feb- 
ruary 14, 1913, the Commissioner 
of Public Works reported a suf- 
ficiency thereof. The necessary 
dedicatory plats have also been pre- 
pared, but with one exception have 
not been recorded, and remain in 
the possession of the writer. 

The plat which has been recorded 
is signed by Wright Clark Bishop. 
The following property described is 
dedicated for use as a public street 
according to this plat of dedication, 
dated January 6, 1913: 

"The west sixty-six feet (66') 
of the east three hundred sixty- 
three feet (363') of the south four 
hundred sixty- two feet (462') 
and the south thirty-three feet 
(33') of the west five hundred 
sixteen and fifteen one-hun- 
dredths feet (516 15/100') of the 
east eight hundred seventy-nine 
and fifteen one-hundredths feet 
(879 15/100'), all in the southeast 
quarter (S. E. %) of the north- 
east quarter (N. E.'%), 19-37- 
15." 

It seems that on January 6, 1913 
(the date on which the plat was re- 
corded), the title to the above prop- 
erty was held by one named Allison, 
who secured this property from 
Bishop on March 18, 1912. Since 
Allison was the owner of the prop- 
erty on January 6, 1913, and not 
Bishop, we are of the opinion that 
the dedication does not affect the 
aforesaid property in any manner 
whatever, and that the dedication is 
invalid. 

On January 13, 1913, the property 
was purchased by J. C. Morris at a 
foreclosure sale. It is our under- 



standing that the present owner, J. 
C. Morris, refused to dedicate. 

Under the circumstances we rec- 
ommend that condemnation pro- 
ceedings be instituted against the 
above-mentioned property for the 
purpose of creating streets. 

The remaining plats, as hereto- 
fore stated, are in the possession 
of the writer, and have never been 
recorded. The owners do not want 
to record the plats unless they are 
assured that the extension will be 
constructed. In case the present 
owners dispose of their property, 
complications may arise on account 
of the change of title. For this 
reason I believe it is advisable to 
condemn the property included in 
their plats. They are as follows : 
t. The thirty-three feet (33') 
of the west ten hundred twenty- 
three feet (1023') (except the 
west thirty-three feet [33'] 
thereof) of the east one thousand 
three hundred and twenty feet 
(1320 r ) of the southeast quarter 
(S. E. %) of section 19-37-15. 

2. The south thirty-three feet 
(33') of the east six hundred 
sixty-six and one-half feet 
(666%') of the west six hundred 
ninety-nine and one-half feet 
(699%') of the southwest quarter 
(S. W. %) of the southeast quar- 
ter (S. E. %) of Section 30-37-15. 

3. The west sixty-six feet 
(66') of the east two hundred 
forty-seven feet (247') of lots 1, 
3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 of division of the 
north one hundred and two acres 
(102) of the northeast quarter 
(N. E. %) of section 19-37-15. 
(The above lots 1 and 3 of divi- 
sion of the north one hundred 
and two acres [102] are also 
known as lots 1 and 3 of the 
County Clerk's Division of Lots 1, 
2 and 3 of the Division .of the 
north one hundred and two acres 
(102) of the northeast quarter 
[N. E. %], section 19-37-15.) 

4. The east thirty-three feet

dred feet (100') of the east thirty- 
three feet (33') of Block eight 
(8) in the subdivision of the 
northeast quarter (N. E. %), 
southwest quarter (S. W. %), 
section 30-37-15. (Acknowledged 
by Elan G. Clark and Charles C. 
Abell.) 

On March 19, 1912 (C. P., p. 3209) 
an order was passed by the City 
Council to condemn certain streets 
along the so-called "Compromise 
Route." We recommend that this 
order of condemnation be rescinded 
for the reason that under the ordi- 
nance of March 30, 1908, the com- 
pany cannot be compelled to con- 
struct the "Compromise Route." 
This is not so with the "Zigzag 
Route." The company, as heretofore 
stated, has contracted with the city 
in the ordinance of March 30, 1908, 
to construct the "Zigzag Route." If 
all the streets along this route are 
opened the company will have no 
legal excuse to refuse to construct 
this extension. 

Answering the second part of 
your query we beg to advise you 
that the city has not prevented the 
company from constructing the ex- 
tension along the "Compromise 
Route." The ordinance of March 
30, 1908, provided that in case a 
more direct route can be obtained 
before the construction of the ex- 
tension is commenced then, subject 
to the approval of the City Council, 
such more direct route could be 
substituted for the original route. 
The City Council at no time ap- 
proved any route other than the 
original "Zigzag Route" specifically 
provided for in the ordinance of 
March 30, 1908. 

We are of the opinion that the 
company by any action taken by the 
city has not been released from its 
obligation to construct the Hege- 
wisch extension along the route 
specifically set out in the ordinance 
of March 30, 1908. 

Should it meet with your ap- 
proval we will prepare the neces- 



sary order to be passed by the City 
Council directing the condemnation 
of all unopened streets. If this is 
done and the streets are opened 
there will be no other obstacles in 
the way of the construction of the 
Hegewisch extension along the orig- 
inal "Zigzag Route."

Law Department, ] 
Chicago, October 18, 1915. \ 

Eon. Henry D. Capitain, Chairman, 
Committee on Local Transporta- 
tion: 

Dear Sir — In compliance with the 
request of your committee for an 
opinion concerning a forfeiture or- 
dinance appearing in the printed 
journal of the iGouncil Proceedings 
of October 4, 1915, at pages 1542 
to 1544, we advise you that the 
foundation of our inquiry is the or- 
dinance of March 30, 1908, author- 
izing the 'Calumet & South Chicago 
Railway Company to construct, 
maintain and operate a system of 
street railways in certain streets of 
the city of Chicago. This ordinance 
was accepted by the company May 
29, 1908. 

This ordinance required the com- 
pany to construct, equip and place 
in operation within the respective 
periods therein mentioned, the ex- 
tensions of its line specified in Ex- 
hibit "B" to the ordinance. So far 
as the Hegewisch extension is con- 
cerned, that is the one which we 
understand is involved at the mo- 
ment. Exhibit "B" provides (Coun- 
cil Proceedings, March 30, 1908, 
Page 4774) : 



"Extension from 106th street 
to Hegewisch on the east side of 
Calumet River on and along the 
following route : South on Green 
Bay avenue from 106th street to 
118th street, thence west on 118th 
street to Superior avenue, thence 
south on Superior avenue to 
122nd street, thence west on 
122nd street to Carondolet ave- 
nue, thence south on Carondolet 
avenue to 130th street, thence 
east on 130th street to Erie ave- 
nue, thence south on Erie avenue 
to Howard avenue, with a 'Y' at 
the intersection of Erie and How- 
ard avenues, provided, however, 
that in case a more direct route 
can be obtained before the con- 
struction of said extension is 
commenced, under the provisions 
of this ordinance, then, subject 
to the approval of the City Coun- 
cil, said more direct route shall 
be substituted for the above de- 
scribed route." 

The ordinance in question con- 
templated that this extension should 
be completed and in operation by 
January 1, 1910. Section 3 of the 
ordinance in question provides in 
part (printed journal of Council 
Proceedings, page 4743) : 

"The company shall not be au- 
thorized or obligated to construct 
any extension of its street rail- 
way system upon streets on 
which street railways are not lo- 
cated when this ordinance goes 
into effect until the City has 
granted to the Company what- 
ever authority in addition to this 
ordinance may he necessary to 
comply with the frontage consent 
laws of the State of Illinois." 
Our information is that at the 
time that the ordinance of March 
30, 1908, was passed no street rail- 
way tracks were constructed in any 
of the streets designated in the so- 
called Hegewisch extension. In 
view of which the effect of that 
portion of Section 3, above quoted, 
was and is to require the City Coun- 
cil to pass an ordinance authoriz- 
I ing the company to lay its tracks 



1706 



NEW BUSINESS — BY WARDS. 



October 19, 1915. 



in said streets after the necessary 
frontage consents had been obtained. 

The 90th Clause of Section 62 of 
the Cities and Villages Act, to 
which reference is made in Section 
3, is as follows: 

"Ninetieth. The City Council 
or Board of Trustees shall have 
no power to grant the use of or 
the right to lay down any railroad 
tracks in any street of the city 
to any steam, dummy, electric, 
cable, horse or other railroad 
company, whether the same shall 
be incorporated under any, gen- 
eral or special law of the State, 
now or hereafter in force, except 
upon the petition of the owners 
of the land representing more 
than one-half of the frontage of 
the street, or so much thereof as 
is sought to be used for railroad 
purposes, and when the street or 
part thereof sought to be used 
shall be more than one mile in 
extent, no petition of land owners 
shall be valid unless the same 
shall be signed by the owners of 
the land representing more than 
one-half of the frontage of each 
mile and of the fraction of a mile, 
if any in excess of the whole 
miles, measuring from the initial 
point named in such petition, of 
such street or of the part thereof 
sought to be used for railroad 
purposes." 

A careful investigation fails to 
disclose that sufficient frontage pe- 
titions of a nature required by that 
provision of the statute above re- 
ferred to, have been presented to 
the Council, or that any Council au- 
thority based upon amy such peti- 
tion, so far as the streets in question 
are concerned, has ever been 
granted. We have taken up the 
matter of frontage consents with 
the Secretary of your committee as 
a check upon our independent in- 
vestigations, and are advised by him 
that sufficient frontage consents to 
authorize the laying of tracks in the 
streets in question have not been 
obtained. 



Such frontage consents are a con- 
dition precedent to the grant of any 
right to construct tracks in any of 
such streets. 

Wilder v. Aurora, 116 111. 493. 

McGann v. People, 194 111. 526. 

That portion of Section 3 to 
which we have referred makes no 
provision as to who shall obtain the 
frontage consents thereby required. 
And in view of the strictness with 
which courts regard proceedings 
aimed at an enforcement of for- 
feitures, we are inclined to the op- 
inion that the courts would not sus- 
tain a forfeiture under the circum- 
stances to which we have above re- 
ferred. 

The proceedings attending the 
proposed extension are greatly in- 
volved and to lend some light to 
the subject we call attention to the 
following : 

On June 28, 1909, the committee 
on local transportation presented 
an ordinance granting consent, per- 
mission and authority to the Cal- 
umet & South Chicago Railway 
Company to construct, maintain and 
operate certain extensions of its 
street railway system, including the 
Hegewisch extension along the Zig- 
zag Route, and also reported that 
frontage consents for such exten- 
sion had been referred to it and 
recommended that the same be sub- 
mitted to the commissioner of pub- 
lic works for verification and the 
result published. (C. P. 1909-10, 
pp. 791-2, 798). 

At a meeting of the City Council 
held on July 6, 1909, a petition of 
the company for the passage of the 
ordinance introduced on June 28, 
1909, was presented, together with 
proof of publication of notice of 
the time and place when and where 
such petition would be presented. 

The ordinance was passed at this 
meeting. (C P. 1909-10, pp. 928- 
930, 1035-6). 

On August 19, 1909, there was 
presented to the City Council a ver- 
ification report of the commissioner 
of public works on the frontage

consents for the extension author- 
ized by the ordinance of July 6, 
1909, showing a surplus of 2229.17 
feet. (G. P. 1909-10, pp. 1134-6). 

Ordinance amending Exhibits A 
and B of the ordinance of 
March 30, 1908. 

On October 18, 1909, an ordinance 
was introduced to amend Exhibit B 
of the March 30, 1908, ordinance. 
(G. P. 1909-10, p. 1386). 

At the council meeting of October 
26, 1909, the committee on local 
transportation presented a substi- 
tute ordinance for the amendment 
of both Exhibit A and Exhibit B of 
the 1908 ordinance, and of Section 
1 of the ordinance of July 6, 1909. 
(C. P. 1909-10, pp. 1455-6). 

This substitute ordinance, which 
was passed on November 8, 1909, 
amended Exhibits A and B of the 
1908 ordinance and Section 1 of the 
July 6, 1909, ordinance by substi- 
tuting 117th street if or 118th street 
wherever the same appears therein. 
(C. P. 1909-10, pp. 1650-1.) 

On January 10, 1910, an order 
was introduced and referred to the 
committee on local transportation 
directing the committee 

"To take up the question of 
amending the ordinance of the 
Calumet & South Chicago Rail- 
way passed March 30, 1908, in 
order to secure a more direct 
route for the Hegewisch extension 
of the street railway of said com- 
pany. 1 ' (Council Proceedings 
1909-10, page 2559.) 

On March 21, 1910, the Committee 
on Local Transportation introduced 
an ordinance pursuant to the order 
of January 10, 1910, which was de- 
ferred and ordered published. 
(Council Proceedings 1909-10, pages 
3490-1.) 

This ordinance granted consent, 
permission and authority to the 
company to construct, maintain and 
operate the Hegewisch extension 
along the following route: 

"Upon and along Ewing avenue 

beginning at the intersection of 



108th street and Ewing avenue, 
south to 110th street, with curves 
over private property from Ewing 
avenue to 110th street, thence 
west on 110th street from Ewing 
avenue to Superior avenue (in- 
cluding part of the south half of 
110th street from Ewing avenue 
to Avenue O to be opened by said 
City of Chicago), thence with 
curves over private property 
from 110th street to Superior 
avenue, thence south on Superior 
avenue from 110th street to 
122nd street (including part of 
Superior avenue from the center 
line of 114th street to 297 feet 
north of 117th street and includ- 
ing part of the east half of Supe- 
rior avenue from 118th street to 
122nd street, to be opened by said 
City of Chicago), thence south- 
westerly from the intersection of 
122nd street and Superior avenue 
over private property to the 
right-of-way of the Calumet 
River Railroad, thence southerly, 
parallel and adjacent to and east 
of the Calumet River Railroad 
over private property to a point 
on the center line of Ontario ave- 
nue produced 1320 feet north of 
the center line of 130th street, 
thence southerly from said point 
on Ontario avenue (including On- 
tario avenue from said point to 
130th street to be opened by said 
City of Chicago), to 130th street, 
thence south on Ontario avenue 
from 130th street to Howard ave- 
nue, thence southeasterly on 
Howard avenue to the south city 
limits of said City of Chicago, 
* * * said route being in lieu 
of the route for the Hegewisch 
extension prescribed by Exhibit 
B of the ordinance of March 30, 
1908." 

The ordinance provided that this 
line

and limitations of said ordinance 
of March 30, 1908, and all amend- 
ments thereto heretofore or here- 
after made, and in all respects as 
though the- right to construct, 
maintain and operate the same 
had been granted said company 
in and by said ordinance." 
At the council meeting of March 
28, 1910, there was presented a pe- 
tition of the company for the pass- 
age of the ordinance introduced at 
the meeting of March 21, 1910, and 
with this petition was presented 
proof of publication of March 18th 
of notice of the time and place when 
and where such petition would be 
presented. (Council Proceedings 
1909-10, pages 3678-3681.) 

On April 13, 1910, a communica- 
tion was presented to the City Coun- 
cil from the president of the com- 
pany reading as follows: 

"To the Honorable, the Mayor 
and City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen - — There is now 
pending before your Honorable 
Body the petition of the Calumet 
and South Chicago Railway Com- 
pany for an ordinance authoriz- 
ing the company to construct 
upon and along the route therein 
described an extension of its 
street railway system,, commonly 
known as the "Hegewisch Exten- 
sion." The construction of the 
Hegewisch Extension by the com- 
pany was required by the terms 
of the company's main ordinance, 
passed March 30, 1908. Several 
different routes for the extension 
were proposed by the various 
communities in the South Chicago 
District interested in this exten- 
sion, and a number of hearings 
was had before the Local Trans- 
portation Committee upon the 
question of fixing the most de- 
sirable route for this extension. 
After a careful consideration of 
the various routes proposed, the 
company and the Allied Improve- 
ment Association of the South 
Chicago District agreed upon the 



location of the line, and on March 
18th, the Local Transportation 
Committee accepted the route 
thus agreed upon, and recom- 
mended the passage of an ordi- 
nance authorizing the construc- 
tion of the extension upon the 
agreed route. On March 29th the 
ordinance was introduced in the 
City Council, and was ordered de- ] 
ferred and published for one 
week. 

As soon as the route was ac- 
cepted by the Local Transporta- 
tion Committee, the company im- 
mediately began the work of pro- 
curing the necessary frontage 
consents. The company desired 
to construct and put this line in j 
operation not later than the mid- 
die of July of this year, and im- 
mediately arranged for material 
and supplies for the construction 
of the extension. By March 28th 
the company had procured the 
requisite frontage consents for 
the entire route recommended by 
the Local; Transportation Com- 
mittee, except for that portion of 
the route along Superior avenue 
from 117th street to 122nd street, 
the frontage of which is controlled 
by Isaac N, Hardin. 

At the same time, the company 
took up negotiations with Mr. 
Hardin for the purchase from him 
of sufficient property for the con- j 
struction of its tracks upon the 
agreed route south of 122nd 
street, and offered to pay Mr. ; 
Hardin his price for the property, 
but he refused to give the com- 
pany the requisite frontage con- 
sent over the above mentioned 
portion of Superior avenue until 
a contract for the purchase of 
his real estate had been entered 
into, but imposed such conditions 
and reservations as to prevent the 
closing of the matter until after 
March 28th, and so prevented the 
passage of the ordinance in ques- 
tion on that date. 

The company immediately re- 
sume'd its negotiations with Mr. 
Hardin, and a final conference 



October 19, 1915.

1709 



was had on April 8th. Mr. Hardin 
claimed that by the terms of his 
dedication of the above men- 
tioned portion of Superior ave- 
nue, he had obtained the right to 
construct and maintain across 
Superior avenue, for the benefit 
of his own property, a waterway 
250 feet in width, and insisted 
that his frontage consent and sale 
of property be upon condition 
that upon the construction of 
such waterway the company 

"Shall upon written notice so 
to do, immediately remove said 
tracks and other obstructions, and 
shall, without any expense to said 
Hardin, his heirs, executors, ad- 
ministrators or assigns, make 
provisions for the crossing by 
said railway of said waterway, if 
it desires to so cross the same, 
but in such way and manner as 
shall not obstruct or delay the 
construction of said waterway, or 
its use, or operation for the pur- 
poses of navigation," 
and upon the further condition, that 
in event the company failed to 
remove its tracks immediately as 
aforesaid, the said Hardin should 
have the right to enter upon Supe- 
rior avenue and remove the com- 
pany's tracks, at the company's ex- 
pense. 

The company agreed to all of the 
other conditions sought to be. im- 
posed by Mr. Hardin, but declined 
to consent to the foregoing condi- 
tion, for the reason that such a con- 
dition in case the waterway should 
be built, would cut the company's 
line in two, and deprive the citizens 
of Hegewisch and the territory ly- 
ing south of 122nd street, of the 
street railway service to which the 
public is entitled, and which the 
company is ready and desires to fur- 
nish. 

The company is now ready and 
willing to construct the Hegewisch 
Extension as soon as a valid ordi- 
nance authorizing the construction 
of the extension shall be passed by 
the City Council, but by reason of 



the course taken, and still persisted 
in by Mr. Hardin, the company has 
been, and still is, unable to obtain 
the necessary frontage consents for 
the construction of this line, and 
therefore considers it the duty of 
the company to advise your Honor- 
able body of the situation at the 
earliest possible moment.

At the council meeting of August 
22, 1910, communications were pre- 
sented from the General Chemical 
Company and from the Allied Asso- 
ciations of South Chicago protest- 
ing against the passage of the ordi- 
nance introduced on March 21, 1910, 
(Council Proceedings 1910-11, pages 
1370-1), and the Local Transporta- 
tion Committee submitted a new or- 
dinance providing for a different 
route for the extension, as follows: 
"Ewing avenue, from 108th 
street to a point thirty-three 
(33) feet south of the north line 
of 110th street, thence south over 
private right of way to a point

ard avenue." 

(Council Proceedings 1910-11 pages 
1393-4). 

On October 3, 1910 the Local 
Transportation Committee intro- 
duced in the City Council another 
ordinance in lieu of that submitted 
by it on August 22, 1910 and pro- 
viding for the following route for 
the Hegewisch extension: 

"In, upon and along Ewing 
avenue beginning at the intersec- 
tion of 108th street and Ewing 
avenue, south to 110th street, with 
curves over private property from 
Ewing avenue to 110th street, 
thence west on 110th street from 
Ewing avenue to Superior avenue, 
(including part of the south half 
of 110th street from Ewing ave- 
nue to Avenue O, not now open 
as a street). Thence with curves 
over private property from 110th 
street to Superior avenue, thence 
south on Superior avenue from 
110th street to 122d street, (in- 
cluding part of Superior avenue 
from the center line of 114th 
street to 297 feet north of 117th 
street, not now open as a street), 
thence southwesterly from the 
intersection of 122d street and Su- 
perior avenue over private prop- 
erty to the right of way of the 



Calumet River Railroad, thence 
southerly, parallel and adjacent to 
and east of the Calumet River 
Railroad over private property to 
a point on the center line of On- 
tario avenue produced 1,320 feet 
north of the center line of 130th 
street, thence southerly from said 
point on Ontario avenue (includ- 
ing Ontario avenue from said i 
point to 130th street, not now . 
open as a street), to 130th street, j 
thence south on Ontario avenue !| 
from 130th street to Howard ave- j 
nue, thence southeasterly on j 
Howard avenue to the south city

Hegewisch extension, prescribed I 
by 'Exhibit B\ of the ordinance I 
of March 30, 1908," 

(Council Proceedings 1910-11, J 
pages 1417-19). 

At the Council meeting of Octo- j

The communication from the

following report of the sub-com- 
mittee on the ordinance introduced 
October 3, 1910, providing for the 
Hegewisch extension: 

"Chicago, 111., Feb. 21, 1912. 
To the Chairman and Members, 
Committee on Local Transpor- 
tation: 

Gentlemen — Your Sub -Com- 
mittee, to whom was referred 
the matter of the extension to 
Hegewisch of the street railway 
lines of the Calumet and South 
Chicago Railway Company, begs 
leave to report : 

Since making its verbal report 
to you, the Sub-Committee has 
directed its energies toward se- 
curing a route along the 'Com- 
promise Route' or some variation 
of the same to be agreed upon. 
There are few dedicated streets 
in the region to be traversed and 
no North and South dedicated 
street between 114th street and 
117th street so that whatever 
route may be fixed upon will re- 
quire street opening. Your Sub- 
committee called in all the vari- 
ous owners of tracts of property 
crossed by the route on other 
than opened streets and confer- 
red with all of .them who could 
be reached regarding the free 
dedication of streets along the 
route (or alternatives) and the 
granting of frontage consents to 
construct the line thereon. We 
find that, while a goodly number 
express themselves in favor of 
making such street dedication and 
granting such consents, they are 
not ready at this time to give ab- 
solute assurance on which can be 
based the starting of this work. 
In discussing the matter, we 
found it would be advantageous 
to make a diversion in the 'Com- 



promise Route'. To go south in 
Ewing avenue from 108th street 
to 110th street and west in 110th 
street to Superior avenue entails 
running along a street now open 
to only half width and which the 
abutting property owner refuses 
to open to full width. By follow- 
ing Green Bay avenue across the 
unsubdivided tract from 114th 
to 117th streets instead -of Su- 
perior avenue, the route can be 
made to follow the present road 
over which the public has now a 
right through adverse use and 
condemnation proceedings would 
be short and simple. The route 
found advantageous is to start at 
the present tracks run west in 
108th street to Green Bay avenue, 
south in Green Bay avenue to 
117th street, west in 117th street 
to Superior avenue, south in Su- 
perior avenue to 122d street, 
thence southwest on a curve to 
the line of Ontario avenue, 
thence south on the line of On- 
tario avenue and Ontario avenue 
proper to Howard avenue. 

After taking up the desirability 
of following this diverted route 
with the Calumet & South Chi- 
cago Railway Company, the com- 
pany was found not to be dis- 
posed toward the route because 
of its having 180 degrees more 
curvature than the compromise 
route and we find the Company 
insists upon the 'Compromise 
Route' being followed. Even on 
this route the majority of owners 
of property along the route are 
favorable to arrangements for 
carrying it through, but we can- 
not get definite assurances as yet. 
Those who are favorable will 
probably dedicate and save con- 
demnation proceedings; such pro- 
ceedings will have to be taken in 
the remaining cases to insure 
provision of a route. 

Your Sub-Committee therefore 
recommends that the City take 
immediate steps % to open the 
streets along the* 'Compromise

Route' by regular condemnation 
proceedings. 

Very respectfully, 
(Signed) Eugene Block, 

Chairman, 
W. F. Lipps, 
J. S. Derpa." 
(Council Proceedings 1911-12, 
pages 3004-5). 

On March 19, 1912 an order was 
introduced and referred to the 
board of local improvements provid- 
ing for the condemnation of 110th 
street from Ewing avenue to ave- 
nue 0; of Ontario avenue from 
122nd street to 130th street, and of 
Superior avenue from 114th street 
to a point 260 feet north of 117th 
street. (G. P. 1911-12, p. 3209). 

And at the council meeting of 
April 4, 1912 the ordinance sub- 
mitted by the local transportation 
committee on October 3, 1910 was 
ordered placed on file. (C. P. 1911- 
12, p. 3306). 

On July 15, 1912 an order was in- 
troduced and referred to the com- 
mittee on local transportation res- 
cinding the order of March 19, 
1912. (C. P. 1912-13, p. 1327). 

On January 27 3 1 9 1 3, an order 
was introduced and referred to the 
committee on local transportation 
directing the preparation and sub- 
mission to the council of drafts of 
"necessary orders and the requiste 
supplemental ordinance authoriz- 
ing and requiring the Calumet & 
South Chicago Railway Company 
to immediately construct the ex- 
tension to Hegewisch set out and 
required under an ordinance 
passed March 30, 1908." 
With this order were presented 
the frontage consents of property 
owners to the construction of this 
extension which were referred to 
the commissioner Of public works 
for verification and report. (C. P. 
1912-13, p. 3429.) 

On February 14, 1913, a verifica- 
tion report by the commissioner of 
public works on the petitions con- 



taining frontage consents of owners 
of property abutting upon the Zig 
Zag Route, and showing a surplus 
on each street was placed on file, i 
(C. P. 1912-13, pp. 3712-13.) 

The following opinion dated July 
10, 1913, signed by Max M. Korshak, 
assistant corporation counsel, ap- | 
proved by William H. Sexton, cor- j 
poration counsel, was submitted to j 
Mr. H. H. Evans, secretary, com- ! 
mittee on local transportation: 
"In your letter of recent date 
you request this department to 
furnish the sub-committee of the j 
Committee on Local Transporta- j 
it ion with a complete statement 1, \ 
of the rights of the city as they j 
now stand with respect to the 
Hegewisch extension, also, 2, jj 
whether the attitude of the city 
of Chicago has been such as to I 
release the Calumet and South 
Chicago Railway Company from 
the obligation to construct the 
Hegewisch extensiion. 
"The Hegewisch extension is pro- 1 
vided for in an ordinance to the i 
Calumet and South Chicago Rail- 
way Company, dated March 30, | 
1908. The route is specifically setj 
out as follows: 

'Extension from 106th street to 
Hegewisch on the east side of 
Calumet River on and along the 
following route: South on Green j 
Bay avenue from 106th street to; 
118th street, thence west on 118th 
street to Superior avenue; thence j 
south on Superior avenue to: 
122nd street, thence west on 
122nd street to Carondelet ave- 
nue, thence south on Carondelet; 
avenue to 130th street, thence 
east on 130th street to Erie ave- 
nue, thence south on Erie avenue 
to Howard avenue, with a "Y u 
at the intersection of Erie and 
Howard avenues.' 
Several alternate routes have been 
suggested by the people in the lo- 
cality affected, as well as by the 
Calumet Company. This change in 
routes is sanctioned by the ordi- 
nance which provides, 



October 19, 1915.

1713 



'That in case a more direct 
route can be obtained before the 
construction of said extension is 
commenced under the provisions 
of this ordinance then, subject to 
the approval of the City Council 
said more direct route shall be 
substituted for the above de- 
scribed route'. 

The change of routes has been 
the subject of discussion for sev- 
eral years before your committee 
and various sub-committees. There 
has been much talk about a so- 
called 'Compromise Route.' . The 
City Council, however, has at no 
time approved the substitution of 
the so-called 'Compromise Route' 
in lieu of the route specifically set 
out in the ordinance of March 30, 
1908. As a matter of fact the 
'Compromise Route' cannot be con- 
structed for the reason that certain 
streets along the 'Compromise 
Route' are not open. 

The original route of the Hege- 
wisch extension is more commonly 
known as the 'Zigzag Route.' Front- i 
age consents for this extension have 
been filed prior to July 6, 1909, and 
on this date an ordinance was 
granted to the Calumet Company 
which was, 

'Subject to all the provisions, 
conditions, requirements and 
limitations of the ordinance 
passed by the City Council of the 
City of Chicago on March 30, 
1908 * * * and of "exhibit 
B thereof." (C. P., p. 1035.) 
Since the passage of this last 
named ordinance it has developed 
that certain, streets along the 'Zig- 
zag Route' are not open. It is ex- 
ceedingly questionable whether the 
city can enforce the forfeiture pro- 
visions contained in the ordinance 
of March 30, 1908, by reason of the 
failure of the Calumet Company to 
build the 'Zigzag Route' unless the 
city first furnishes a route of open 
streets upon which a street rail- 
way can be built. To build along 
the 'Zigzag Route' would be a haz- 
ardous undertakning on the part of 



the company and might subject the 
company to considerable litigation. 
We do not believe that the company 
is obligated to expend any money 
for the purchase of a right of way 
for the Hegewisch extension under 
the ordinance of March 30, 1908. 

The Association of Commerce 
and other public spirited citizens 
have taken this matter up with the 
writer with a view of overcoming 
the obstacle of unopened streets. 
The writer has suggested that new 
frontage consents covering the 
'Zigzag Route' be secured and that 
dedications of all unopened streets 
be made by the abutting owners. 
This would save the necessity of 
long delayed condemnation proceed- 
ings. 

As a result of considerable labor 
and effort new frontage consents 
covering the 'Zigzag Route' have 
been secured and filed and on Feb- 
ruary 14, 1913 the Commissioner of 
Public Works reported a sufficiency 
thereof. The necessary dedicatory 
plats have also been prepared, but 
with one exception have not been 
recorded and remain in the posses- 
sion of the writer. 

The plat which has been recorded 
is signed by Wright Clark Bishop. 
The following described property is 
dedicated for use as a public street 
according to this plat of dedication, 
dated January 6, 1913; 

'The west sixty-six feet (66') 
of the east three hundred sixty- 
three, feet (363') of the south four 
hundred sixty-two feet (462') 
and the south thirty-three feet 
(33') of the west five hundred 
sixteen and fifteen one-hun- 
dredths feet (516 15/100') of the 
east eight hundred seventy-nine 
and fifteen one-hundredths feet 
(879 15/100') all in the southeast 
quarter (S. E. %) of the north- 
east quarter (N.E.%) 19-37-15.' 
It seems that on January 6, 1913 
(the date on which the plat was 
recorded) the title to the above 
property was held by one named 
Allison who secured this property 



1714 



NEW BUSINESS- 



i — by wards. October 19, 1915. 



from Bishop on March 18, 1912. 
Since Allison was the owner of the 
property on January 6, 1913 and not 
Bishop we are of the opinion that 
the dedication does not affect the 
aforesaid property in any manner 
whatever and that the dedication 
is invalid. 

On January 13, 1913, the prop- 
erty was purchased by J. G. Morris 
at a foreclosure sale. It is our un-^ 
derstanding that the present owner, 
J. G. Morris refuses to dedicate. 

Under the circumstances we rec- 
ommend that condemnation pro- 
ceedings be instituted against the 
above mentioned property for the 
purpose of creating streets. 

The remaining plats as heretofore 
stated are in the possession of the 
writer and have never been re- 
corded. The owners do not want 
to record the plats unless they are 
assured that the extension will be 
constructed. In case the present 
owners dispose of their property, 
complications may arise on account 
of the change of title. For this 
reason I believe it is advisable to 
condemn the property included in 
their plats. They are as follows: 

1. The thirty-three feet (33') 
of the west ten hundred twenty- 
three feet (1023') (except the 
west thirty-three .feet (33') 
thereof) of the east one thousand 
three hundred and twenty feet 
(1320') of the south east quarter 
(S.E.%) of Section 19-37-15. 

2. The south thirty-three feet 
(330 of the east six hundred 
sixty-six and one-half feet 
(666 %') of the west six hundred 
ninety-nine and one-half feet 
(699 W) of the .southwest quar- 
ter (S. W. VI) of the southeast 
quarter (S. E. %) of Section 30- 
37-15. 

3. The west sixty-six feet (66') 
of the east two hundred forty- 
seven feet (2470 of Lots 1, 3, 4, 5, 
6 and 7 of Division of the north 
one hundred and two acres (102) 
of the northeast quarter (N. E.

above Lots 1 and 3 of Division of 
the north one hundred and two

division of the north one hun- 
dred and two acres (102) of the

On March 19, 1912 (C. P., p. 
3209) an order was passed by the J 
City Council to condemn certain 
streets along the so-called 'Com- 
■promise Route.' We recommend j 
that this order of condemnation 
be rescinded for the reason that 
under the ordinance of March 30, 
1908, the company cannot be 
compelled to construct the 'Com- 
promise Route.' This is not so j 
with the 'Zigzag Route.' The 
company as heretofore stated 
has contracted with the city in 
the ordinance of March 30, 1908, 
to construct the 'Zigzag Route.' ! 
If all the streets along this route 
are open the company will have 
no legal excuse to refuse to con- , 
struct this extension. 

Answering the second part of 
your query, we beg to advise you 
that the city has not prevented 
the company from constructing 
the extension along the 'Compro- j 
mise Route.' The ordinance of I 
March 30, 1908, provided that in | 
case a more direct route can be j 
obtained before the construction j 
of the extension is commenced, 
then subject to the approval of 
the City Council, such more di- 
rect route could be substituted 
for the original route. The City i 
Council at no time approved any

route other than the original 
'Zigzag Route 1 specifically provid- 
ed for in the ordinance of March 
30, 1908. 

We are of the opinion that the 
company by any action taken by 
the city has not been released 
from its obligation to construct 
the Hegewisch Extension along 
the route specifically set out in 
the ordinance of March 30, 1908. 

Should it meet with your ap- 
proval we will prepare the nec- 
essary order to be passed by the 
City Council directing the con- 
demnation of all unopened 
streets. If this is done and the 
streets are opened there will be 
no other obstacles in the way of 
the construction of the Hege- 
wisch extension along the original 
'Zigzag Route.' "

On July 28, 1913, the Commis- 
sioner of Public Works filed a sup- 
plementary report on the petition 
for that part of the "Zigzag Route" 
in Green Bay avenue from 114th 
street to 118th street showing a 
shortage of the requisite consents 
of 273.44 feet. (C. P. 1913-1914, p. 
1655.) 

On March 23, 1914, the City 
Council passed an order reading as 
follows : 

"Whereas, Under an ordinance 
of the City of Chicago dated 
March 30, 1908, the Calumet and 
South Chicago Railway Company 
undertook to construct an exten- 
sion of its lines of street railway 
from 106th street to Hegewisch 
on the east side of the Calumet 
River along a certain designated 
route, and 

Whereas, At the time of the 
passage of said ordinance some 
streets were unopened in places, 
by reason of the fact that no ded- 
ication thereof had ever been 
made, and 

Whereas, All necessary dedica- 
tions have since been made and 
the necessary frontage consents 
for this extension have been pro- 
cured and filed. 

Now, therefore, It is ordered 
by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago that the Calumet and 
South Chicago Railway Company 
be and it is hereby ordered and

It is further ordered that said 
company have said extension 
constructed and in operation not 
later than July 1, 1914." (G. P. 
1913-14, Vol. II, p. 4515-16.) 

On July 2, 1914, the City Council 
passed an order reading as follows: 
"Whereas, Under an ordinance 
passed by the City Council of the 
City of Chicago on March 30, 1908, 
it was provided that the Calumet 
and South Chicago Railway Com- 
pany shall construct and have in 
operation by January 1, 1910, an 
extension of its lines of street 
railway from One Hundred and 
Sixth street to Hegewisch along 
a certain designated route men- 
tioned in said ordinance of March 
30, 1908; and 

Whereas, It was provided in 
and by said ordinance that in case 
a more direct route can be ob- 
tained before the construction of 
said extension is commenced, 
then, subject to the approval of 
the City Council, said more di- 
rect route could be substituted 
for the route mentioned in said 
ordinance of March 30; 1908; and 
Whereas, A more direct route 
has never been obtained which 
has been approved by the City 
Council of the City of Chicago; 
and, 

Whereas, The time for the 
completion of this extension has 
long since expired; and, 

Whereas, The necessary front- 
age consents for this extension 
have been filed and the Calumet 
& South Chicago Railway Com- 
pany are legally bound to con-

ance with the provisions con-

the City of Chicago, on March 23, 



1914 (Council Journal, page

the Calumet & South Chicago 
Railway Company to construct 
the said Hegewisch extension, as 
provided for in the ordinance of 
March 30, 1908, and to have said 
extension constructed and in op- 
eration not later than July 1, 
1914, with which order the said

Respectfully submitted,

Chairman:' 

(C. P. 1914-15, pp. 3411-13.) 

This order was passed by the 
City Council on February 15, 1915. 
(C. P. 1914-15, pp. 3612-13.) 

While there is some question as 
to whether or not certain of the 
streets involved have been legally 
dedicated at points involved m the 
proposed extensions, there seems to 
be no doubt that Green Bay avenue 
from U 4th street to a point one 
hundred and three feet north ot 
117th street is not open as a public 
highway. The fundamental trouble 
with the whole matter lies m the 
fact that Section 3 of the ordinance 
of March 30, 1908, required certain 
things to be done as a condition 
precedent to the construction of tne 
proposed extensions, but that sec- 
tion did not, nor did any other por- 
tion of the ordinance, place upon 
any particular person, body or cor- 
poration the obligation to perform 
the conditions precedent, but, un- 
fortunately for the public, providea 
that the extensions need not De

made until these conditions prec- 
edent were performed. 

Up to date no particular indi- 
vidual has been charged with the 
duty of seeing that the necessary 
ordinances, publications, consents 
and street openings have been pro- 
cured. In view of the maze of pro- 
ceedings that have been had, of 
which those hereinbefore mentioned 
may not be the entire list, we would 
suggest that a member of the Cor- 
poration Counsel's staff be detailed 
to check over all of the matters in- 
volved and report to your committee 
just what remains to be done in 
order to impose upon the street 
railway company the obligation to 
make the extensions under the 
terms of Section 3 of the ordinance 
of March 30, 1908. Inasmuch as 
the short time at our disposal has 
not enabled us to speak with the 
degree of exactness which the situ- 
ation requires, we have simply gone 
into the matter far enough to know 
that there are some consents lack- 
ing and that at least one street has 
not been opened. 

In view of the foregoing circum- 
stances, we are clearly of the opin- 
ion that the forfeiture proposed by 
the ordinance October 4th will not 
lie. 

Very respectfully yours,

Aid. Block presented the follow- 
ing resolution, which was deferred 
and ordered published : 

Whereas, The City Council of the 
City of Chicago, under the authority 
in it vested by the 1907 Settlement 
Ordinances has, from time to time, 
issued orders for the betterment of 
service afforded by the various 
surface transportation companies; 
and 

Whereas, The orders of the City 
Council have been persistently ig- 
nored by the Chicago Surface Lines 



and the companies operated by it, 
the City of Chicago has, conse- 
quently, been forced into litigation 
to determine the extent of its au- 
thority in matters pertaining to 
service regulation; and 

Whereas, Certain citizens and 
organizations, failing to receive any 
material benefit from the orders of 
the City Council, and ascertaining 
that the authority of the City Coun- 
cil has been questioned and denied 
by the surface transportation com- 
panies, have been compelled to ap- 
peal for relief from the present in- 
adequate service to the State Public 
Utilities Commission of Illinois; 
and 

Whereas, The Legislature of the 
State of Illinois has refused to grant 
the appeal of the citizens of Chicago 
for Home Rule within its boun- 
daries, and has conferred regulatory 
powers of an unknown amount and 
possibly of uncertain legality upon 
the State Public Utilities Commis- 
sion of Illinois, apparently in lieu 
of giving to the City of Chicago full 
control of the utilities of said city; 
and 

Whereas, The State Public .Utili- 
ties Commission has, after proper 
investigation into the pharacter of 
service furnished by the surface 
transportation companies of this 
city, and having declared the pres- 
ent service to be inadequate, issued 
an order to the said surface trans- 
portation companies, under date of 
September 29, 1915, requiring said 
transportation companies to make 
effective, improvements which are 
known to the City Council to be 
justly within the demands of the 
public, which it represents; and 

Whereas, It appears that many 
of the features of the order of the 
State Public Utilities Commission 
will be of great benefit to the City 
of Chicago, and as the order coin- 
cides to a great extent with Council 
orders heretofore passed and with 
recommendations now pending be- 
fore it, these features can be en-

dorsed by the City Council without 
surrendering the demands of the 
city for full powers of home rule, 
and 

Whereas, It being now proposed 
to this body that an order be issued 
directing the Corporation Counsel 
to take all steps and proceedings as 
may be necessary to Protect the 
rights and jurisdiction of the City 
of Chicago in reference to the reg- 
ulation of street railways, and 
thereby to act in conjunction with 
the surface transportation compa- 
nies to obstruct and Prevent the or- 
der of the State Public Utilities 
Commission from being made ei- 
fective, with the result that through 
litigation the present inadequate 
service will be maintained and the 
surface transportation companies 
permitted to enjoy, without limit, 
such benefits as may accrue during 
the period in which all regulations 
of either the City Council or the 
State Commission may be properly 
denied. 

Whereas, In order that the citi 
zens may have the highest and best 
service which can be obtained as a 
result of the exercise of authority 
of either the City or State, now, 
therefore, be it 

Resolved, That while it is the 
sense of the City Council of the City 
of Chicago to continue all efforts to 
secure the most complete Home 
Rule, it is also the sense and direc- 
tion of this body that the Law De- 
" partment shall do nothing to estop 
the installing of the much needed 
service betterment contained m 
said order of the State Public Utili- 
ties Commission of September 29, 
1915; and be it further 

Resolved, That the Committee on 
Local Transportation be and it is 
hereby directed to consult with the 
Department of Public Service, and 
to report to the City Council, as 
soon as possible, ordinances em- 
bodying a measure of service bet- 
terment which is at least as great 
as the betterment contained m the 



order in question. Said ordinances 
to be in direct compliance with the 
contract ordinances now in force 
and effect between the City of Chi- 
cago and the several companies; 
and be it further 

Resolved, It is the sense of this § 
body that the City of Chicago should 
not become involved in any dispute 
which would tend in any way to 
delay the enforcement of service | 
betterment of which citizens, of Chi- ; 
cago are in dire need.
